Industry XML Connector Factory Classes
The Industry XML Connector Factory Classes are developed based on the Siebel Financial Services EAI infrastructure aimed at supporting variety XML Standards extension for the Industry XML Connector described in Siebel Financial Services EAI Architecture. The factory classes are built to leverage the functionality of Industry XML Connector while giving customers the opportunity to customize generic connector business services through configuration and programming scripts. In most cases, scripts are needed for presentation purpose, but in rare cases they may be used to add or enhance the connector functionality.
To set up a customized XML Connector

NOTE: For a list of methods and method arguments available for the four business services, see Siebel Financial Services EAI Architecture.
- Customize the behavior of the connector through the user properties of the four business services configured in Step 1.
NOTE: For a list of available user properties for the four business services, see Siebel Financial Services EAI Architecture.
