Improving the performance of SAP standard implementations using SAP PI Advance Adapter Engine (AAE) (Enhanced Document/ Version 2)


5.     Standard Implementation Process in PI

Standard SAP interface implementation based on ESOA means two SAP Application Systems exchange messages through SAP PI. ESOA methodology exchanges message using proxies from ABAP back end. Business Scenario is to integrate two SAP Systems

You have the option to start an integration development project using integration content predefined by SAP. There is a lot of predefined content already available that can be reused and which helps customers to save time and effort in their integration development projects. A typical use case is that customers use data types, service interfaces, and mappings provided by SAP. For standard implementations like SAP ERP to SAP SRM predefined content works perfect for development projects. As it has all the relevant ESR content required.

So let us take the above example and see how to develop scenarios.

5.1  Systems Involved

Systems involved in this integration are SAP ERP 6.0 EHP 4, SAP SRM 7.0 and SAP PI 7.1 EHP 1.

SAP Integration Content has to be imported from Service Market Place, let us see, available Integration Content for respective systems involved in our integration in Service Market Place.

5.2  SLD

For the standard implementation we need to import latest Content Repository SAP_CR in to SAP PI’s SLD. Logic here is, latest CR contains relevant the Products and Software components for the Technical Systems (Application Systems SRM and ERP).

Fig: SAP_CR  

After post installation steps we could see in SLD, Data tab is containing Content Repository version as SAP_CR 3.0 or 4.0. This CR need to be updated to the latest available level.
