SAP (a German global software corporation) integration server (SAP IS) is the key component of SAP exchange infrastructure (SAP XI), which enables network and operating system (OS) cross-communication. It provides internal and external connectivity for SAP enterprise application integration (EAI). SAP IS controls inbound and outbound communications across Web applications, including such controls during system configuration.
SAP IS operates via two cohesive processing components: integration and the business process engine. The business process engine provides integration services, such as routing across its entire domain. It also provides adapter mapping/management and messaging logic definition which specifies how messages are transmitted. Thus, quality requirements continuously remain intact.
