Hi Srini,

<b>Where we are using Web Services in SAP XI ?</b>

we use SOAP adapter to communicate with Webservice...

-> Some remote clients or Web services providers are only able to communicate by means of SOAP messages

->SOAP adapter enables you to exchange SOAP message between remote clients and Web Service Servers and the Integration Server.

-> The SOAP Adapter provides a runtime environment that includes various SOAP components for the processing of SOAP message.

-> You use the SOAP adapter to connect such systems to the Integration Server directly

-> The SOAP adapter uses a helper class to instantiate and control these SOAP components

->The SOAP adapter receives a msg from the remote client or Web service provider, converts the SOAP protocol into XI msg protocol and then sends the msg to the Integration Server to be processed further.

<b>How to Use ?</b>

If you want to expose a websevice then we have to chose outbound interface and expose it as webservice to the outside world, so anyone can call your webservice. Please follow stefan's weblog
