Explore the fundamental performance improvements that have been made in SAP NetWeaver Process Integration 7.1. Learn how to make these changes part of your project when planning the performance of your integration scenario for a legacy application.
Key Concept

The Advanced Adapter Engine (AAE) represents a new architectural approach for message processing. This Java-only adapter engine enables the bypass of the central Integration Server. In SAP NetWeaver Process Integration 7.1, you can process certain integration scenarios on the AAE without routing the messages through the Integration Server. This is possible for scenarios that require only Java-based connectivity and that don’t require any integration processes (cross-component Business Process Management [ccBPM]).

SAP NetWeaver Process Integration (SAP NetWeaver PI) is a key component of SAP’s service-oriented architecture (SOA) infrastructure that companies use to integrate SAP and non-SAP systems. Scenarios include service enabling of legacy applications as well as application-to-application (A2A) and business-to-business (B2B) communication.

SAP NetWeaver PI 7.1 is the latest release and provides major benefits in many important areas. They include superior governance with Enterprise Services Repository (ES Repository) and the Services Registry; enhanced developer productivity; much faster installation (less than three hours); and reduced sizing.
