Abstract

Disclosed is an application architecture, describes the end to end integration of existing back end system through web. Architecture integrates e-business framework with existing SAP/ERP system using XML(eXtensible Markup Language). This would enable Sellers and Buyers to integrate their existing EDI systems (SAP or ERP through web. In traditional business environments, Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) allows companies to exchange business documents in a structured and computer processable format. Though EDI has been successfully deployed among large enterprises, the primary barriers to widespread acceptance of EDI are the costs of implementation and the costs of communication. Proposed architecture will bring down the cost of implementation and communication by using XML over the web. Database XML Repository eb Enabler WCustomerSupplier
