Synchronous FTP response message
I am new to XI, so would welcome some advice.
I have implemented an interface from ECC5 via abap proxy to XI FTP adapter to send files to a third party.
I am using a synchronous interface to check the ftp has been successful.
Because of it being synchronous, I must give a response message type. But as this response is empty, the mapping back is failing.
So, can I have a synchronous interface without a response, or can I fill the response from the FTP action, and if so, how ?

this is difficult, since File adapter are by definition asynchronous.
You can use an Integration Process:
You have an option to run an operating system command after the file operation. Make this operation the creation of a response file. the response file triggers a second PI process.
This second process (Wait for file created) together with the first process forms the semaphore that allows for the synchronous response. (Inside the Integration Process)
This is a bit cumbersome, but I don't now any other way.
