Integration objects are the data containers used within the workflow environment. They represent the data structure of either a Siebel business object or an external application's data object.
You can create integration objects with the integration object wizard provided in Siebel Tools. The integration object wizard can create Siebel integration objects from Siebel business objects.
For ACORD integration work, please use the FINS ACORD Wizard in Siebel Tools that reads an ACORD Document Type Definition (DTD) and creates the required external integration objects, pairs them with the internal integration objects, creates the envelope and header integration objects, and finally associates all of these in the rule-based dispatcher map.
This document describes how to use the FINS ACORD Wizard to complete design time requirements. For more information about the FINS ACORD Wizard see Siebel Connector for ACORD XML in this document. For more information on the integration objects read Overview: Siebel eBusiness Application Integration Volume I.
