HI,

check these links for EDI/ALE/IDOC details.

<b>EDI</b>

EDI interface is used to link/communicate SAP system to some external system. like .NET application. IDOC's are used for communication purpose.

http://help.sap.com/printdocu/core/Print46c/en/data/pdf/SDEDI/SDEDI.pdf

http://help.sap.com/printdocu/core/Print46c/en/data/pdf/BCSRVEDISC/CAEDISCAP_STC.pdf

<b>ALE/IDOC</b>

ALE interface is mostly used for communication within different R/3 SAP systems. like you have a distributed environment and you need to share data between two SAP systems then you will use ALE/IDOC technique.

Hi,

Check this :

EDI is described as the interchange of structured data according to agreed message standards between computer systems, by electronic means. Structured data equates to a simple and direct method of presenting the data content of a document. The method of ensuring the correct interpretation of the information by the computer system is defined by the EDI standard."

EDI is a technique used to communicate business transactions between computer systems of different companies and organizations. Note that sometimes the EDI mechanism deployed at a company is often used to interface to other systems within the same organization."
