ZIP-compression for XML-messages

Former Member
0 Kudos

I need to transfer XML-messages via very poor channel between SAP XI and third-party system.

Because XML messages has a big size and channel hasn't high throughput I want to compress data

Standard XI adapters (like HTTP Plain, File/FTP, XI) have no support for this functionality.

Should I create my custom adapter? Can I extend functionality of standard adapter via custom modules (modules page on channel configuration)?

Hi Eugeny,

Yes, you are right.

For outboundmesages use a self written module in the adapter to zip the message.

Incoming messages can be unzipped on the receiving service in ta: sicf.

As far as I know there exist already some project implementations. Maybe somebody can post the coding?
