PI/XI: PI 7.3 new functionalities for different adapters (JMS, JDBC, HTTP) – teaser

SAP Process Integration 7.3 will not only provide new options for single stack installations and more flexible ICO object, it will also give us a few enhancement to the already existing adapters. In this article I’d like to show you a few of those:

1. Adapter timeout

It is finally possible to specify the timeout for every java based adapter that uses CallSapAdapter module bean. CallSapAdapter module has now a new parameter – syncTimeout which allows to specify in milliseconds the timeout after which the adapter will throw a MessageExpiredException.


2. Maximum message size and row size fetched with JDBC adapter

You can now specify two additional parameters maxMsgSize and maxRowSize (as per OSS note – 1253826) which will limit the message which JDBC adapter will be processing. 



Finally we not only have an HTTP adapter on the java stack but we can also use a GET method without any workarounds.


4. Topic support (publish/subscribe scenarios) for JMS adapters.

JMS adapter now supports working with topics.


These are not all improvements for PI 7.3 adapters but I’m sure the most noticeable and I bet many of you have been waiting for a few of those for a long time. Now we still need to wait for PI 7.3 but at least we know that those functionalities exist.

  • Hi Michal,

    Thanks for sharing these new and much awaited features in PI. I believe you will talk about these in your session at TechEd in Vegas. Hope to catch you there 🙂


    • Hi,

      >>>To connect to an ABAP proxy on ECC system, does PI 7.3 requires dual stack?

      there is a java adapter for that on PI 7.11 so why would we need abap on 7.3 ? 🙂 - so the answer is - no we don't need dual stack
      just like we don't need abap stack on 7.11 do use ECC proxies
