webservice via webdispatcher

Hi All,

I am working on SOAP to RFC  synchronous scenario. This is my first SOAP to RFC scenario.

I would like to know the difference between webservice going directly from thirdparty to XI and webservice going via webdispatcher to XI.

And also when we will be using webdispatcher?

Thanks in advance,

Hi Ramya,

In a VPN, any incoming SOAP request going to your PI system will be accepted just by using the standard URL e.g http://host:port/XISOAPAdapter/MessageServlet?channel=p:s:c where p = party, s = service and c = channel. However, outside of VPN (Internet), the request will not reach your PI system at all.

For security purposes, companies use a webdispatcher for that purpose
