SAP NetWeaver PI enables IT professionals to facilitate communication between service-enabled applications through its services bus. Built-in mediation capabilities are used to reconcile incompatible protocols, structural maps, schema, and data formats between provider and consumer applications. Reliable transport and queuing capabilities provide mechanisms for handling different quality-of-service levels at runtime.
Support for various connectivity options include handling different end points, such as file, database, Web services, Java Message Service (JMS), Remote Function Call (RFC) documents, intermediate documents (IDoc) for electronic data interchange (EDI), RosettaNet Implementation Framework (RNIF) messaging, and so on. To support different usage scenarios, flexible deployment options of the service bus are available. Various topologies of the service bus include standalone, packaged with the applications, or federated across the enterprise. As such, IT professionals can facilitate the integration and flexible reuse of business functionality across a SOA-based landscape.

Mapping and Routing
This blog series covers all major new features and enhancements for mappings that are delivered in SAP NetWeaver PI 7.1.
This blog introduces an online demo that illustrates some of the initial mapping enhancements in SAP NetWeaver PI 7.1.
SAP Mapping Factory is a Service offering by SAP Consulting helping customers to implement their own integration scenarios.
Advanced Adapter Engine
With the Advanced Adapter Engine, you can connect the Integration Engine to SAP systems (RFC adapter) and non-SAP systems. You use the various adapters in the Adapter Engine to convert XML- and HTTP-based messages to the specific protocol and format required by these systems, and the other way around.
Using integrated configuration in the Integration Directory, you can define a local message processing on the Advanced Adapter Engine with very low effort. The Advanced Adapter Engine provides mapping and routing for this locally. Message processing is only executed on the Advanced Adapter Engine from one adapter to another without the involvement of the Integration Engine. You can gain a great improvement in performance.
This how-to guide describes how to configure local message processing on the Advanced Adapter Engine using the integrated configuration object in the Integration Directory.
SAP offers several adapters to connect the Integration Engine to SAP legacy systems, as well as to external systems.
This page provides an overview of all adapters provided by SAP.
