Overview

The Open PI Initiative (OPI2) is the first comprehensive Open Source project for SAP Netweaver PI. Aim of the initiative is to provide and develop reusable adapters, tools, libraries and functional add-ons for SAP NetWeaver PI within the open source community. The current subprojects comprise the Open PI Adapter for EDIFACT, the Open PI Adapter for AS2 and the Open PI Conversion Module for EDIFACT.

Latest News

  • New version of Open PI Adapter for AS2 released. New functionality covering dynamic configuration of connection parameters for receiver communication channels and minor bug fixes. (2013-01-25)
  • Update of the Open PI Adapter for AS2 is released. The new version contains certificate-based authentication for receiver communication channels and minor bug fixes. (2013-01-25)
  • New patch for the Open PI Conversion Module for EDIFACT is released. It includes support for integrated configuration and minor bug fixes. (2013-01-25)
  • To avoid double maintenance for fixes and enhancements, the subproject for the OPI2 EDIFACT Adapter is set to deprecated. For new implementations in regards to EDI over AS2 it's recommended to use the OPI2 AS2 Adapter in combination with the OPI2 EDIX Conversion module. (2012-09-10)

Current Subprojects

Open PI Adapter for AS2

The Open PI Adapter for AS2 provides support for the widely used AS2 protocol.

Features:

  • full-blown PI adapter solution based on XI adapter framework
  • secure internet-based communication via AS2 over HTTP(S)
  • supports encryption (3DES, RC2) and digital signatures (SHA1, MD5)
  • central configuration in PI Integration Directory and monitoring in the Runtime Workbench and PIMON
  • compatible with releases from XI 3.0 SP17 and PI 7.0 SP08 on
  • new version available for PI 7.1X and PI 7.3X

  



Open PI Conversion Module for EDIFACT

The Open PI Conversion Module for EDIFACT was the first OPI2 subproject and comprises a PI adapter module for flexible EDIFACT conversion.

Features:

  • bidirectional conversion between EDIFACT and EDIFACT XML
  • simple extension for additional EDIFACT releases and subsets (EANCOM, ODETTE, ...)
  • seamless integration in existing SAP PI standard adapters (File, JDBC, JMS...)
  • full integration in XI Adapter Framework
  • compatible with releases from XI 3.0 SP17 and PI 7.0 SP08 on
  • new version available for PI 7.1X and PI 7.3X

  

Open PI Adapter for EDIFACT

The Open PI Adapter for EDIFACT offers EDI communication via Internet based on the AS2 protocol. Sub-project is set to deprecated.

Features:

  • full-blown PI adapter solution based on XI adapter framework
  • bidirectional conversion between EDIFACT and EDIFACT XML
  • simple extension for additional EDIFACT releases and subsets (EANCOM, ODETTE, ...)
  • secure internet-based communication via AS2 over HTTP(S) (EDIINT)
  • supports encryption (3DES, RC2) and digital signatures (SHA1, MD5)
  • central configuration in PI Integration Directory and monitoring in the Runtime Workbench
  • compatible with releases from XI 3.0 SP17 and PI 7.0 SP08 on
  • new version available for PI 7.1X

  


 
Open PI EDIX Conversion Module

The latest subproject of the Open PI Initiative offers a bidirectional conversion for multiple EDI formats like EDIFACT, ANSI X12 and TRADACOM.

Features:

  • bidirectional conversion between EDIFACT and EDIFACT XML
  • additional support for ANSI X12 and TRADACOM
  • based on EDI XML structures created via GEFEG.FX (allows easy migration to/from other EDI solutions for PI)
  • simple extension for additional EDI releases, subsets and messages without redeployment of the adapter module
  • seamless integration in existing SAP PI standard adapters (File, JDBC, JMS...)
  • full integration in XI Adapter Framework
  • compatible with releases from PI 7.1X on
  • additional schemas and releases for EDIFACT and ANSI X.12 can be requested via info@openpi2.org



Upcoming and planned Subprojects

  • Function libraries for string conversion, context handling, etc.


Join the Open PI Initiative !

Our goal is to develop and provide useful tools and enhancements around SAP NetWeaver PI within the open source community.
Feedback, questions, own contributions and suggestions for new subprojects are warmly welcome!
