There are lot of documentation available on AIF along with cookbook for developer to understand and implement. But still we get lost on why and what configuuration should actually be useful and in which all scenarios.
In this blog I shall show the actual step by step process on AIF(Application Interface Framework) configuration for Inbound Scenario along with how to code for the same.
In another blog shall provide the steps how to configure the AIF for outbound scenarioas well.
AIF for inbound Interface
Say if there is any interface inbound to S4 as shown in the below screen.
Note : Either SPROXY transaction / ESR browser from SE80 can be used to check the interfaces
Fig 1. Interface Proxy definition

Once generated , the default proxy class , along with the the structures gets automatically created.
A default proxy method method gets created as shown in the fig 2.
Fig 2. Default proxy method generated.
The below code will push the input coming from the PI into the AIF( Application Interface Framework ) structures.
