Image Request from SAP to 3rd Party
From my SAP system 4.6C, I plan to request for some image files from an external non-sap application and display it on a SAP subscreen. This will be real time. say example, In IE03 PM Equipment i request an equipment image(say upon a custom button press).
Can anybody suggest how to incorporate this from an integration point of view thro XI 3.
a) is there any webservice available to receive the image file ?
b) since its gonna be real time, where will the image need to be stored xi or sap?
c) how will it be scneario be when multiple users request same or diff equipment image ?
Does any1 has a working sample on this type of scenario, would appreciate if you can share and adivce me on same.
