D Using PeopleSoft Integration Broker

This appendix describes how to configure and test PeopleSoft Integration Broker (release 8.4) and PeopleSoft Application Messaging (release 8.1) using a PeopleSoft-supplied File Output interface. In PeopleSoft release 8.1, the messaging architecture is called Application Messaging and includes Application Messaging Gateway. In release 8.4, the messaging architecture is called Integration Broker, which includes Integration Gateway. When discussing release-generic issues, this section uses release 8.4 terminology. When discussing release-specific issues, it uses release-specific terminology.

Note:

This section is not a substitute for PeopleSoft documentation. For more complete and up-to-date information on PeopleSoft Messaging and Integration Broker, see the PeopleSoft Online Library for your PeopleSoft system.

This appendix contains the following topics:

PeopleSoft Integration Broker

PeopleSoft Integration Broker provides a mechanism for communicating with the outside world using XML files. Communication can take place between different PeopleSoft applications or between PeopleSoft and third-party systems. To subscribe to data, third-party applications can accept and process XML messages posted by PeopleSoft using the available PeopleSoft connectors or by adding a custom built connector to the Integration Gateway. This topic primarily covers publishing outbound asynchronous messages from a PeopleSoft system to a third-party application using the delivered File Output connector. For information on outbound synchronous messages, see "Using Outbound Synchronous Messages".To send a message, you must properly configure various internal structures and processes. The following descriptions are generally release-generic. Detailed differences between releases 8.1 and 8.4 are discussed in other topics.

Most of the examples in this section use the LOCATION_SYNC message, which is a PeopleSoft Enterprise Integration Point (EIP) and is supplied with most PeopleSoft applications. If LOCATION_SYNC is not part of your package, you may use any supplied message.

Configuring Integration Broker in PeopleSoft 8.4

You can configure PeopleSoft 8.4 to send an asynchronous outbound message to the File Output connector.

To configure application messaging in PeopleSoft 8.4:

  1. Ensure that the message is active and is routed to the proper Message Channel.

  2. Configure the Message Channel.

  3. Configure the IntegrationGateway.properties file to communicate with your PeopleSoft 8.4 application.

  4. Configure the Integration Gateway and File Output connector.

  5. Create and configure a new Gateway node.

    These tasks are described in detail in the following procedures.

Ensuring the Message Is Active and Is Routed Correctly

To ensure that the message is active and is routed to the proper Message Channel:

  1. Open Application Designer.

  2. On the File menu, point to Open, click Message, and then open the LOCATION_SYNC message, as shown in Figure D-1.

    Figure D-1 LOCATION_SYNC Message

    Fields included in the message
    Description of "Figure D-1 LOCATION_SYNC Message"

  3. To view the fields that are included in the Message, highlight LOCATION_TBL.

  4. Right-click LOCATION_TBL and select Properties.

    The Message Properties dialog is displayed, as shown in Figure D-2.

    Figure D-2 Message Properties Dialog

    Message Properties dialog box
    Description of "Figure D-2 Message Properties Dialog"

  5. Select the Use tab.

  6. Ensure the Active check box is selected.

    The message is routed to the Message Channel, ENTERPRISE_SETUP, and the default message version is VERSION_1 (messages can have multiple versions).

  7. Click OK and then save the message.

    You have finished ensuring that the message is active and is routed correctly.

Configuring the IntegrationGateway.properties File

To configure the IntegrationGateway.properties file:

  1. Open the IntegrationGateway.properties file using the editor of your choice.

  2. Find the section of the file that specifies the JOLT connect string setting for the default application server. This is usually near line 75, and looks similar to the following:

    ## JOLT connect string setting for optional Default Application Server. Do NOT specify a NODENAME.
    #
    # Example:
    #ig.isc.serverURL=//MYSERVER:9000
    #ig.isc.userid=MYUSERID
    #ig.isc.password=MYPASSWORD
    #ig.isc.toolsRel=8.40
    
  3. Uncomment (or copy and uncomment) the four lines that specify the connection.

  4. Enter the appropriate information.

    In the following example, the tools release is 8.40.09:

    ig.isc.serverURL=//isdsrv14:9000
    ig.isc.userid=VP1
    ig.isc.password=VP1
    ig.isc.toolsRel=8.40.09
    

    The PeopleSoft tools release must be precise to the last decimal.

Note:

With release 8.42, the password must be stored in an encrypted format. PeopleSoft provides a script called PSCipher.bat (PSCipher.sh on UNIX) to accomplish encryption. Typically, this script is located in the path of the IntegrationGateway.properties file. Follow the instructions supplied by PeopleSoft to run this script.

You have finished configuring the IntegrationGateway.properties file.

The following window displays the PeopleCode that initiates a LOCATION_SYNC message, as shown in Figure D-25.

For more information about PeopleCode, consult your PeopleSoft Online Library.

You have finished viewing the PeopleCode for a message. You can now test Integration Broker (in PeopleSoft 8.4) or Application Messaging (in PeopleSoft 8.1).

Testing the Integration Broker

To test the Integration Broker by generating a message, you can navigate to the Location Transaction window and add, update, or delete a location entry in your application. Depending on your application, the way you navigate varies.

An example that illustrates a Financials 8.4 application where a new location with a SetID of SHARE and a Location Code of TEST001 was added, as shown in Figure D-26.

Figure D-26 Financials 8.4 Application

Example of a Financials 8.4 application
Description of "Figure D-26 Financials 8.4 Application"

A portion of the XML output is shown in Figure D-27.

Note:

The name of the file is PSFT_EP.LOCATION_SYNC.69.xml, which is the concatenation of PSFT_EP (the local Publishing Node), the name of the message, and the number of the Publication ID.

If you cannot send a message successfully, PeopleSoft provides a set of tools for monitoring the progress of your messages. In release 8.1, you use a tool called the Application Messaging Monitor. In release 8.4, you use the Monitor Menu in the Integration Broker.

For a complete description on how to isolate and resolve problems with your messaging environment, consult your PeopleSoft Online Library. If you are still unable to send your XML file, the PeopleSoft Customer Connection can help solve your problem.

Using Outbound Synchronous Messages

Starting with PeopleTools 8.4, you can send outbound synchronous messages. From a high-level point of view, the primary difference between outbound synchronous and asynchronous is that with outbound asynchronous, the transaction is completed whether the message is actually sent or received.

For synchronous outbound messages:

Oracle Application Adapter for PeopleSoft can work with PeopleSoft outbound synchronous messages. Outbound synchronous messages involve additional configuration steps, both within PeopleSoft and in Oracle WebLogic Server. This topic briefly describes the configuration requirements within PeopleSoft.

Note:

The instructions in this topic build upon the instructions for outbound asynchronous messages. It is strongly recommended that you familiarize yourself with outbound asynchronous messaging before attempting outbound synchronous. For more information on outbound asynchronous messages, see "Configuring Integration Broker in PeopleSoft 8.4".

Ensure that both outbound and inbound messages are created and active. PeopleSoft provides template examples called IB_INST_VER_SYNC_MSG and IB_INST_VER_RESP_MSG. For information on examining these messages, see "Ensuring the Message Is Active and Is Routed Correctly".

Configuring Outbound Synchronous Messages

You can use an existing node, or you can create a new node to configure outbound synchronous messages. For more information on creating and configuring a node, see "Creating and Configuring a New Gateway Node". In either case, you must set up your outbound synchronous transaction.

The following example uses a node and transaction delivered by PeopleSoft. However, this example is for illustrative purposes only and does not actually work as delivered without additional steps. As of Financials release 8.42, there are no preconfigured outbound synchronous transactions that you can use for testing purposes.

Configuring an Outbound Synchronous Message

To configure an outbound synchronous message:

  1. Navigate to the Node Definitions page and open the PT_LOCAL node.

  2. Click the Transactions tab.

    The Transactions pane is displayed, as shown in Figure D-28.

    Figure D-28 Transactions Pane

    Transactions pane
    Description of "Figure D-28 Transactions Pane"

    One outbound synchronous message, IB_INST_VER_SYNC_MSG, appears in the Transaction Type list.

  3. Click the Edit link in the IB_INST_VER_SYNC_MSG row.

    The following pane is displayed, as shown in Figure D-29.

  4. Click the Messages tab.

Both request and response messages appear. The target system must ensure that the response message follows the format of the request message. As the target system is your Oracle WebLogic Server, you must transform the XML that is sent and returned from your final destination.

Note:

You must use the PeopleSoft-supplied HTTP target connector when you are working with synchronous outbound messages. You cannot use the TCPIP84TARGET connector for outbound synchronous messages.

Viewing the PeopleCode for a Synchronous Message

The sample PeopleCode in the following example is for a synchronous outbound message. It differs from asynchronous outbound in that it must handle a response message.

Viewing the PeopleCode for a Financials Synchronous Outbound Message

The following sample code is supplied with the Financials application and is associated with the two messages IB_INST_VER_SYNC_MSG and IB_INST_VER_RESP_MSG.

To view the code, perform the following steps:

  1. From Application Designer, open the PSINST_VER record.

  2. Select the PeopleCode display option.

  3. Select the Field Change (FCh) box for the IB_SEND_SOS_BTN field.

The following window is displayed, as shown in Figure D-30.
