confusion on Adapters

Hi All,

I'm a newbie to SAP XI, just completed my installation of SAP XI SR1 along with post installation steps. I have a confusion w.r.t Adapter Engine. Along with SAP XI 3.0 SR1, is it a must to install either J2SE adapter or PCK?

If I have to try out weblog " /people/venkat.donela/blog/2005/03/02/introduction-to-simplefile-xi-filescenario-and-complete-walk-through-for-starterspart1, Is it sufficient to install J2SE? After doing the steps described in weblog how to test XI application?

Hi Praveen,

J2SE adapter and PCK are not a must:)

you use j2se only if you don't want to use central adapters

and PCK is a version of a "small XI"

take a look at this page:

and the Implementation Considerations section

Installation of SAP XI SR1 will suffice the purpose. U need not install J2SE and PCK.

J2SE is a light weight Adapter engine that is being used with XI2.0. SAP has extended its support to use J2SE with XI3.0 also.

PCK is a lighter version of XI, used by small business parners who cannot afford to buy XI.

To test your application you should have created your Configuration time Objects. The following link provides you insighe to configration objects.

U can also refer to the folloing link completing your configuration part & test your scenario


Hope this helps you.
