Hi all,

I have some problems in understanding SAP integration with legacy systems and am into subscribing to canonical documents published by other leagcies.

I just wanted to know which SAP adapter is the best taking in mind their

complexity and fuctionality.

Either to use ALE-IDOC adapter or to go for ALE-BAPI adapter.

whether can I use BAPI client adapter for both read and write into SAP.

The SAP version is 4.6.

Thanks and Regards,

if you get a flat file from legacy, use LSMW or BAPI to load into SAP..
