The Industry XML Connector is a configured set of components that allows Siebel applications to exchange data with external systems using XML messages. These components are called business services and can be extended to support multiple connectors. You can use the overwrite methods to extend the functionality of both industry XML connectors as well as Siebel Financial Service eAI infrastructure for enterprise data sharing and data synchronization for your integration implementation. By using the overwrite methods to extend the functionality, you obey the rules of data exchange set forth by the legacy or back-end systems, such as specific XML structure and envelope details, while using the common requirements for business processes and transactions. Figure 6 illustrates architecture of the Industry XML Connector.
The Industry XML connector has four key components: Industry XML Transaction Manager, Industry XML Data Transformation Engine, Industry XML Converter, and Industry XML Dispatcher. They are described in following sections.
