Utility of UDFs and some more questions

Hi Experts,

I hav a some questions tht I was asked during an interview, I couldnt manage some of them,

1.It is seen that in messege mapping, when the mapping logic is big for a given field, and the mapping looks messy and complex, we normally write an UDF. Or sometimes the logic tooks to complex to be done using teh standard components .... well is there any other specific reason why we write an UDF apart from this!

2. In an idoc to file scenerio... from day to day monitering perspective, I follow the following moniterimg steps!

In R/3.

Check the status of posted idoc in we02/05.

In XI - Abap Stack:


1. IDX5


3. SMQ2

In XI - JAVA Stack:

1. RW - Messege Monitering - Adapter Engine - System error / Holdings / Waitings .

Apart from this, we can log in the FTP server and check the data of the file.

My query is, is there any other step I hav missed out. I was asked by the interviewer there is something I am missing in between successful posting of the Idoc and at the time of receiving the same in XI.

I simply forgot to ask him the answer!! :-(.
