SAP Application Interface Framework (SAP AIF) – structure mapping sequence
Almost all integration scenarios require some sort of mapping to be performed. SAP AIF offers a flexible tool called Structure Mapping to handle that. It’s based on general concept of traversing the source structure from the root and drilling down to substructures and their fields. However it has certain limitations. One is that if in the source message at certain same level we have multiple structures, we can’t indicate in what order SAP AIF should process them. To be more specific, they are always mapped in alphabetical sequence.
