Synchronous & Asynchronous BAPI

Hi,

I understand the basic difference between Sync & Async BAPIs that the client waits for the response in case of Synchronous BAPI.

But I would really appreciate if anybody can give me little more details as to how it is implemented or probably point me to a link where I could find more info.

Thanks,

Ritu

Hi,

Do I have to use ALE for BAPIs? I thought it was only in case of IDocs..

Ritu,

No, you don't need to use ALE for BAPIs. I sent those lins so you can see the examples & go through documentation that might help you in your development.

If you set the <b>WAIT (WAIT = 'X'.)</b> parameter of <b>BAPI_TRANSACTION_COMMIT</b>, you have converted a BAPI to Sync BAPI or else it is Async.

The WAIT parameter will additionally return a update error <b>"Updating could not be completed"</b> if the update failed.

And no you do not need to configure ALE for BAPI execution.
