Automatic IDoc requests

We are on R/3 4.6C and have the basic version of Business Connector (no extra adapters). Is it possible for an external application to send to our SAP/BC system an XML message containing an order number and receive back an XML message synchronously containing the details of the order? What do we have to set up in SAP/BC to accommodate this request?

I am not aware of a function in SAP that allows requesting the send of an IDoc for ORDERS the way it exists for some master data like MASTERIDOC_REQ_MATMAS. This means, that you will have to implement yourself a routine that triggers the sending of the ORDERS IDoc. A simple way to do is, defining an inbound IDoc handler that saves an entry in NAST and then executes RSNAST00 to process this NAST record. Of course the NAST entry must show a message type that would output the requested IDoc.
