Hi sreedhar,

Implementing cross-system processes is accomplished through SAP Exchange Infrastructure (SAP XI) . It enables you to connect systems from different vendors (non-SAP and SAP) in different versions and implemented in different programming languages (Java, ABAP, and so on) to each other.

Check in the follwing links:

SAP XI - Where to Find Information

https://www.sdn.sap.com/irj/servlet/prt/portal/prtroot/com.sap.km.cm.docs/library/xi/sap xi - where to find information.pdf

help.sap.com

http://help.sap.com/saphelp_nw04/helpdata/en/0f/80243b4a66ae0ce10000000a11402f/frameset.htm

Go thru the documents to get an idea about installation :

Also check in the Weblogs and Forums related to XI in sdn.sap.com once you are familiar with the basic terminologies.

For XI architecture:

Once you are aware of the basics you can start with a simple file to file scenario....these blogs will help u in this regard:

/people/venkat.donela/blog/2005/03/03/introduction-to-simple-file-xi-filescenario-and-complete-walk-through-for-starterspart2

For practise you need Xi to be installed.

Good knowledge in abap,java and xml are the prerequisites to learn XI.

Hi Sreedhar,

<b>Welcome to XI.</b>

<i>Knowledge of ABAP and JAVA is surely going to help you learn XI.</i>

It is important for you to first understand the Netweaver Stack and the role of Exchange Structure in it. For this go through this link

http://help.sap.com/saphelp_nw04/helpdata/en/e1/8e51341a06084de10000009b38f83b/frameset.htm

One of the most powerful feature of XI, Business Process Management:

http://help.sap.com/saphelp_nw04/helpdata/en/3c/831620a4f1044dba38b370f77835cc/frameset.htm

How the messages are delivered through XI:

http://help.sap.com/saphelp_nw04/helpdata/en/17/50d440e14f8431e10000000a1550b0/frameset.htm

Once you go through these links and are a bit aware what all XI objects do, you can try a simple "File to File Scenario" which would help you to understand XI objects in a much better manner.

For help on this scenario go through this blog it is in two parts thus I am providing both links below:

I hope if it helps, you'll give me points.
