Creating XML Integration Objects with the XSD Wizard

Siebel eAI provides two different wizards to create XML integration objects. An XML integration object is essentially an integration object with a base object type of XML. This wizard parses the XML Schema Definition (XSD) file to create an XML integration object.

To create an integration object

  1. Select File > New Object.
  2. Select the EAI tab.
  3. Double-click the Integration Object icon.
  4. Complete the Integration Object Builder initial page:
    1. Select the project from the first drop-down list.
    2. Select EAI XSD Wizard as the Business Service.
    3. Navigate to the path to the location of the XSD or XML file that you want to use as the basis of the XSD and click Next.
    4. NOTE:  The Simplify Integration Object Hierarchy option creates a simpler and flatter internal representation of the XML integration object; however, this does not change the external representation. Having a simpler internal representation makes declarative data mapping easier.

  5. Select the source object, give it a unique name, and then click Next.
  6. Click on the plus sign to expand the list and select or clear the fields you need from the component.
  7. Click Next to get to the final page to review the messages generated during the process and take necessary action as required.
  8. Click Finish to complete the process.
  9. You will see the integration object you created in the Integration Objects list, as shown in the following figure.

NOTE:  You must review the integration objects and the integration components created by the Wizard and complete their definitions based on your requirements.
