Siebel integration objects allow you to represent integration metadata between a Siebel business object and an external XML standard, using the FINS ACORD XML Data Transformation Engine (DTE). The integration object represents a common structure that the eAI infrastructure can understand.
Because these integration objects adhere to a set of structural conventions, they can be traversed and transformed programmatically, using Siebel eScript objects, methods, and functions, or transformed declaratively using Siebel Data Mapper.
User properties in an ACORD envelope provide flexibility to the connector. For example, when a user sends an initial ACORD request, the ACORD document uses a <SignonRq> header that is different from subsequent <SignonRq> headers. Two different integration component user properties, initsignon and sessionsignon, can be used to construct different headers under the same envelope. See Configuration Roadmap for an example of creating an envelope integration object.
ACORD Internal Integration Object. An internal integration object represents the Siebel business object hierarchy for a particular Siebel business object. See Configuration Roadmap for an example of creating an internal integration object.
ACORD External Integration Object. An external integration object represents the ACORD XML hierarchy for a particular ACORD message. See Configuration Roadmap for an example of creating an external integration object.
