SAP-BODS integration using IDOCS
Sending an IDOC to SAP is an asynchronous task. One or many IDOCs
are posted to SAP, just like inserting into a database table, and get stored in
the SAP database. Later, SAP starts to process the IDOC and e.g. creates this
new material record. Once the processing is done, no matter if successful or
not, the status of this IDOC is updated in the SAP table EDIDC.
As a consequence, unlike with BAPIs, you get no return of the
processing. Your only choice is to periodically query above status table and
copy the status back into the senders table. If an immediate return code is
required or the actual error message you have to use BAPIs. On the counter side,
IDOCs are supposed to be faster while still running full data consistency tests.
Before sending the IDOCs we need to have SAP Data store to be
created and then import the required IDOC. For our case to create the customer
The data store created as referred here as ‘SAP_ECC’ shown
