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 🙂

      >>>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
