While tRFC is the most commonly used communication technology for ALE distributed business processes, it is a proprietary SAP technology. So what do you do if you need to send data to a partner with a non-SAP system, and you aren’t yet ready to invest in an additional integration system? As of SAP Web Application Server 6.20, new features in ALE allow you to exchange data using a standardized communication protocol (HTTP) and a standardized data format (XML). This article acquaints you with the capabilities and limitations of HTTP/XML distributions, so you can decide whether it is right for you, shows you how to set one up, and explains what you need to know about potential distribution errors.

Application Link Enabling (ALE) is the standard SAP tool of choice for linking an SAP system to another SAP system, to an application integration system like SAP XI, or to any subsystems, and for distributing data across such systems. However, it is all too easy for such distributions to cause reduced system availability and poor performance for other users and processes. To address these issues, you need to understand how ALE data distributions work — how they utilize work processes, how processing loads can be distributed, when and how to couple or decouple ALE processes, and when and how to use packets for processing. This article provides you with a foundation for that understanding by taking you through the data distribution process and identifying opportunities for controlling and optimizing it.

SAP's Legacy System Migration Workbench (LSMW) is a free add-on tool that supports migration of external data into an SAP system, using a user-friendly mapping tool with helpful features. You simply search for an appropriate object type (or create your own) from your selected import technology, and then map the source data structure to the target. The LSMW does the rest. This article shows you how to perform easier, faster, and more cost-effective data migrations with the LSMW and the BAPI import technology.
