ALE Converters and Subsystems

The ALE concept involves using external converters to connect non-SAP systems to the R/3 System.External converters are generic format conversion programs. The following converter functions arecovered by SAP XA-ALE certification:

  • The transfer of R/3 intermediate document (IDoc) formats straight into their own repository so that these data descriptions can be used as source or target structures when assigning data fields.
  • Adoption and conversion of intermediate documents from R/3 Systems via the ALE interface —a remote function call that can be called up using a normal transaction.
  • Conversion of any data format into intermediate document structures and import into the R/3 System via a remote function call in the ALE interface.
