Create BPM only for WAIT step..
I am working on a IDOC-XI-File interface. Its working perfectly fine.
Due to excellent processing times in SAP, our system ends up sending many files almost at same time( diff in milliseconds I guess) to the legacy system. However Legacy system doesnt like it and wants us to send a file every 1 second apart.
I tried using the '
WAIT UP TO 1 SECONDS'
statement in R/3 ssytem but somehow system does not wait for 1 second( I guess that why they call it UP TO and not WAIT TILL ) ).
Instead of relying on R/3 I thought of creating a BPM witha WAIT step. However have never done BPM before, so wanted your opinion before venturing into it for the following:
1. Can I create a BPM just to introduce 1 sec delay. 2. Since my interface is working currently, If I need to use BPM, will I have to redo the mapping etc. 3. How much time effort do you guys think will be needed to convert an existing(working interface) to BPM interface with WAIT step. (Its an Z-IDOC with 3 segments and no-hierarchy) 4. Any blogs, threads to do it would be highly appreciated.
