What kind of protocals used in XI
What kind of protocals are used in XI generally.
Usually that depends on adapter which you are using
Adapters enable the PCK to communicate with different systems.
Adapters are used to connect the PCK both to SAP Exchange Infrastructure and to other systems.
The PCK provides a variety of adapters for this purpose. You can use these adapters to convert XML and HTTP-based messages to the specific protocols and formats of these systems and the other way around.
The PCK provides adapters, which you can use to do the following, depending on how they are configured:
Communicate with SAP systems using the RFC interface (RFC adapter)
Enable data exchange with the SAP Business Connector (SAP Business Connector adapter)
Exchange data with systems by using a file interface or an FTP server (file/FTP adapter )
Access databases using JDBC (JDBC adapter)
Communicate with messaging systems using the JMS API (JMS adapter)
Integrate remote clients or Web service providers using the SOAP adapter (SOAP adapter )
Connect e-mail servers to the PCK (mail adapter)
Exchange data with SAP Exchange Infrastructure (XI adapter)
In the adapter configuration, you specify whether an adapter is located at the inbound channel (sender adapter) or at the outbound channel (receiver adapter) of the PCK.
