SAP and XML
I have an interview next week, and one of the areas they are interested in is XML.
I have used XML in other programming languages such as VB .NET, ie XML , XSLT, XSD etc..
In SAP , what facilities already exist for XML, and how would it typically be used. I just need enough background to show I have a good understanding of it in a R3 environment.

In SAP netweaver, we have Exchange Infrastructure(XI).
XI is used as a middleware to transfer the data in n out of SAP.
XI makes use of XML.
Basically, SAP uses its IDOC technology for transfer of data to other R/3 or R/2 systems..
But to interact with the 3rd party system, the data is sent to XI.
XI converts the data into XML format and sends it to the 3rd party systems.
Same is true for vice versa where the data from XML is extracted and sent to SAP R/3 in form of an IDOC..
Now hee it makes use of SAX parser..
Also the coding is done in JAVA..
I have some material related to this which i shall mail u..
Send me ur email id.
<b>Best of luck for your interview!!</b>
