Use the Business Enablement Provisioning (BEP) functionality in component IW_BEP to handle the events and actions activated in the SAP system and to publish these events and actions through SAP Gateway.
If your system is based on SAP NetWeaver 7.40 or higher, the functionality of IW_BEP is contained in the core SAP Gateway component SAP_GWFND, which is installed as standard.
The BEP functionality enables you to:

Obtain and send events for SAP Business Workflow, for example, an event is raised for a workflow user decision step.
Obtain and send events from your code, for example, events raised as a result of implemented customer code, such as BAdI implementations.
