PI 7.1 enterprise services: How to find & invoke SAP HCM enterprise Service

Hi all,

in PI 7.1, i read, there is support of enterprice services.

is my current understandings right about PI 7.1 and enterprise services:

1.the standard BAPIs, standard RFC that were provided in R/3 are replaced by standard enterprise services in SAP ECC.

2.a nonSAP application can invoke an enterprise service in the same way as a nonSAP application used to call an RFC in the R/3.

I want to view how an enterprise service of any SAP module can be called by a nonSAP applicaiton.

are there any doc or blog which shows this.

is possible with/wihout PI.

We have follwoing things installed.

1. PI 7.1 SP4.

2. SAP ECC 6.0, i am dealing with SAP HCM module.

are there any enterprise services of HCM available (e.g standard enterprise services given by SAP for HCM module).

basically i want to test whether a nonSAP application like a java application, can it get some info using standard HCM enterprise services provided by SAP.

I explored esWorkplace (http://www.sdn.sap.com/irj/sdn/esworkplace), but it does not display HCM related process components under the column "DISCOVER ENTERPRISE SERVICES".

thanks,

Madhu.

They are not replaced. But Services are added in addition to BAPI's...

non-SAP App can invoke an Enterprise service based on Webservice Standards. Not by using RFC call.

There are lots of services available for HCM... Find them in teh below wiki..
