The XML archiving object has the same function in XML-based archiving as the archiving object in ADK-based archiving. It determines which data is archived and how, and facilitates the execution of the different programs.
As in ADK-based archiving, XML archiving objects are defined in transaction AOBJ. An XML archiving object can have the following programs: Preprocessing, Write, Delete, Read, Index and Postprocessing. The reloading of data is not supported in XML-based archiving, and the status Reloaded does not exist here.
You can recognize an XML archiving object by the indicator XML Archiving Object, which must be set in the detail screen of transaction AOBJ.
