Implementation of ‘New WebService’ engine in AIF
The purpose of this document is to show the implementation steps in SAP ECC for the ‘New WebService’ engine in AIF 702.
Message for a outbound interface will be sent from SAP ECC via WebService using SOA to other system (for example: SAP PI). The messages can be monitored in SOAMANAGER via /AIF/ERR. (I have used SAP note 2010881 for reference)
1. Assign the ‘New WebService’ engine to the Interface (AIF IMG-> Interface Development -> Additional Interface Properties -> Specify Interface Engines)
2. In transaction SOAMANAGER, create a Logical Port for the Interface of new WS
3. In the ABAP program for sending the messages, use FM ‘/AIF/SEND_WITH_PROXY’ and assign the Logical Port as an exporting parameter.
(We copied /AIF/SEND_WITH_PROXY into our custom FM to cater to our requirement)
4. In /AIF/ERR, AIF message was logged,
and from /AIF/ERR we could navigate to Monitoring in SOAMANAGER
