Q: Should we decouple the adapter engine?

Bonjour a tous et a toutes,

We have 3 types of scenarios;

1) HTTP / WebService using SOAP

2) Inbound RFC / IDOC TO Outbound (FTP)

3) Inbound (FTP) TO Outbound RFC / IDOC

For the development environment, we have install SAP XI (NW2004S – SP9 / XI 7.0) using the default all-in-on (AS ABAP with the AS JAVA).

For the production, we have a couple questions:

1) Quality of Service:

a. How can we prioritize certain messages type (WebService vs FTP) in SAP XI ? We want to make sure that WebService request will always be server first and FTP request last …

2) Decouple Adaptors

a.Should we decouple the adaptors (AS JAVA) Adaptor Engine (non central). With other type of EAI middleware (webmethods), for the production environment, we used to install (decouple) the adaptors onto others servers (sometime one adaptor = one server).

3) Encryption

a.How can we call an external program from XI ? We need to call an in-house encryption program (to secure FTP file)

-> I know that we can use ABAP / JAVA proxies, but is there another (simplier) possibiolity ?

Thank in advance !
