Hi vinay

message flow from sender to XI depends on your sender agreement

first defining your sw component you design the message and mappings then you define channels and agrements for sender and receiver

depending upon that web browser takes the request and depending upon the request type (request for abap or java) internet communication manager (ICM) directs it to the dispatcher then dispatcher assigns it to the required work process

There are three types of engine in XI server

adapter engine is one of them which is a java connector architecture(JCA) compliant adapter engine for connecting backend systems to XI'


"one that adapts such as device used to effect operative compatibility between different parts of one or more pieces of aparatus" (Dictionary deffinition)

An XI adapter enables compatibility between the XI Integration server and an Application system.

there are three types of adapter based on their function

1)application (sap, siebel,oracle)

2)technical (file,JDBC,JMS,SOAP, SMTP)

3)industory standard (rosetta net,CIDX)

for more details on scenario you can read TBIT 40 and for adapters you can follow TBIT 42

link are as below



hope it may help you
