Introducing the Advanced Adapter Engine Extended for SAP NetWeaver PI - Webinar Presentation
SOA middleware is a key component in service-oriented architecture (SOA) based landscapes. SAP's SOA strategy relies on SAP NetWeaver Process Integration (PI) as its implementation of SOA middleware to facilitate communication between disparate application systems and service-enable them into an organization's SOA landscape. Starting with the 7.3 release, a new milestone is achieved for SAP NetWeaver PI. The new Advanced Adapter Engine Extended (AEX) allows for a complete stand-alone, single-stack installation option for SAP NetWeaver PI. The AEX includes its own Enterprise Services Repository (Design) and Integration Directory (Configuration). In this session, we provide an overview of the new AEX including: architecture and components, benefits and restrictions, use cases as a standalone engine or in conjunction with another SAP NetWeaver PI system, and outlook for AEX as the next generation of PI approaches.
