Paul Read talks to Udo Paltzer about improvements in the Service Bus in SAP Enhancement Package 1 for NetWeaver 7.1 Process Integration.
We focus on the following areas:
Is SAP NetWeaver Process Integration a Service Bus?
Enhanced flexibility for the integration developer in defining mediation flows:
- Content-based routing and receiver split in Advanced Adapter Engine
- Operation-dependent receiver determination
- Support for new objects types in the Directory API
- Enhanced search for adapter attribute values in communication channels
- Scenario view in Integration Directory
- Enhancements to the Adapter Engine SE: remote configuration, empty file handling, and overwriting of inbound files
Automated A2A/B2B configuration support
- Configuration based on Process Component Interaction Models
Performance enhancements with additional connectivity options:
- ABAP and Java proxies supported in the Advanced Adapter Engine
- End-to-end IDoc packaging
IDoc Conversion Adapter Module
Also, we offer an outlook on what further functional improvements users can expect in future SAP NetWeaver Process Integration releases.
