2 Configuring Oracle Application Adapter for J.D. Edwards OneWorld

This chapter describes how to use Oracle Adapter Application Explorer (Application Explorer) to define a target to connect to a J.D. Edwards OneWorld system, view system objects, and create XML schemas and Web services. This chapter also explains how to configure an event adapter.

This chapter contains the following topics:

Starting Application Explorer

To start Application Explorer:

  1. Ensure that Oracle WebLogic Server is started, which is where Application Explorer is deployed.

  2. Open the command prompt.

  3. Navigate to the following directory:

    <WLS_Home>\user_projects\domains\base_domain\bin
    
  4. Execute setDomainEnv.cmd (Windows) or . ./setDomainEnv.sh (UNIX/Linux).

    This command sets the class path and other environment variables for Application Explorer in the Oracle WebLogic Server environment. In addition, it allows Application Explorer to access the Oracle WebLogic Server APIs to publish WSDL files to the Oracle Service Bus (OSB) Console.

  5. Do not close the command prompt.

  6. Navigate to the following directory:

    For Oracle SOA Suite:

    <ORACLE_HOME>\soa\thirdparty\ApplicationAdapters\tools\iwae\bin\ae.bat
    

    In this example, <ORACLE_HOME> is the location where Oracle SOA Suite is installed.

    For OSB:

    <OSB_HOME>\Oracle_OSB1\3rdparty\ApplicationAdapters\tools\iwae\bin\ae.bat
    

    In this example, <OSB_HOME> is the location where Oracle Service Bus is installed.

    <OSB_Home>\3rdparty\ApplicationAdapters\tools\iwae\bin
    
  7. Execute ae.bat (Windows) or iwae.sh (UNIX/Linux) to start Application Explorer.

Application Explorer starts. You can now define new targets to a J.D. Edwards OneWorld system.

Note:

Before you run the iwae.sh file on UNIX or Linux platforms, the permissions must be changed. For example:
chmod +x  iwae.sh

Configuring Repository Settings

A repository holds information about configuration details, adapter targets, channels, and other configuration information.

Creating a Repository Configuration

Before you use Application Explorer with Oracle Application Adapter for J.D. Edwards OneWorld, you must create a repository configuration. You can create two kinds of repository configurations, Web services and J2CA, depending on the container to which the adapter is deployed. During design time, the repository is used to store metadata created when using Application Explorer to configure adapter connections, browse EIS objects, configure services, and configure listeners to listen for EIS events. The information in the repository is also referenced at run-time.

Web services and BSE refer to the same type of deployment. For more information, see "Adapter Features".

Creating a Configuration for BSE

To create a repository configuration for BSE using Application Explorer, you must first define a new configuration.

Defining a New Configuration for BSE

To define a new configuration for BSE:

  1. Right-click Configurations and select New.

    The New Configuration dialog is displayed, as shown in Figure 2-1.

    Figure 2-1 New Configuration Dialog

    iBSE Configuration dialog box
    Description of "Figure 2-1 New Configuration Dialog"

  2. Enter a name for the new configuration (for example, myConfig) and click OK.

    The New Configuration dialog is displayed, as shown in Figure 2-2.

    Figure 2-2 New Configuration Dialog

    New Configuration dialog box
    Description of "Figure 2-2 New Configuration Dialog"

  3. From the Service Provider list, select iBSE.

  4. In the iBSE URL field, accept the default URL or replace it with a different URL using the following format:

    http://host name:port/ibse/IBSEServlet
    

    Where host name is the system where your Oracle WebLogic Server resides and port is the HTTP port for a managed Oracle WebLogic Server (for example, soa_server1).

  5. Click OK.

    A node representing the new configuration appears beneath the root Configurations node, as shown in Figure 2-3.

    Figure 2-3 Configurations Node

    Sample Config node
    Description of "Figure 2-3 Configurations Node"

Creating a Configuration for J2CA

To create a configuration for J2CA using Application Explorer, you must first define a new configuration.

Defining a New Configuration for J2CA

To define a new configuration for J2CA:

  1. Right-click Configurations and select New.

    The New Configuration dialog is displayed.

  2. Enter a name for the new configuration (for example, myConfig) and click OK, as shown in Figure 2-4.

    Figure 2-4 New Configuration Dialog

    JCA Configuration
    Description of "Figure 2-4 New Configuration Dialog"

  3. From the Service Provider list, select JCA.

  4. Click OK.

    A node representing the new configuration appears beneath the root Configurations node, as shown in Figure 2-5.

    Figure 2-5 Configurations Node

    Sample Config node
    Description of "Figure 2-5 Configurations Node"

The Oracle Adapter J2CA configuration folder is stored in a location based on your adapter installation:

For Oracle SOA Suite:

<ORACLE_HOME>\soa\thirdparty\ApplicationAdapters\config\configuration_name

In this example, <ORACLE_HOME> is the location where Oracle SOA Suite is installed.

For OSB:

<OSB_HOME>\Oracle_OSB1\3rdparty\ApplicationAdapters\config\configuration_name

In this example, <OSB_HOME> is the location where Oracle Service Bus is installed.

The configuration_name is the name of the configuration you created (for example, SampleConfig).

HTTP Repository Connection

You can create an HTTP repository connection using J2CA, which enables them to generate and store WSDL documents remotely. Perform the following steps to create an HTTP repository connection in Application Explorer. To use the HTTP repository, ensure that the iwafjcaivp test tool is successfully deployed and running.

  1. Start the Application Explorer.

  2. Right-click the Configurations node in the left pane and select New.

    The New Configuration dialog opens.

  3. Type a name for the configuration and click OK.

  4. Select JCA from the Service Provider list box and enter an HTTP target value in the Home field.

    Use the following format for the HTTP target value:

    http://host name:port/iwafjca/JCAServlet
    

    For example:

    http://iwserv14:8001/iwafjca/JCAServlet
    
  5. Click OK.

    The new HTTP repository connection is added to the Configurations node.

    Once you connect to the remote server, you can create new Adapter targets, generate WSDL documents, and store them in the remote server.

    Note: When you configure an Adapter target with the J2CA HTTP repository, you are not required to restart Oracle WebLogic Server for run time purposes.

Connecting to a BSE or J2CA Configuration

To connect to a BSE or J2CA configuration:

  1. Right-click the configuration to which you want to connect, for example, myConfig.

  2. Select Connect.

Nodes appear for Adapters, Events, and Business Services (also known as Web services). The Business Services node is only available for BSE configurations. If you are connected to a J2CA configuration, then the Business Services node is not shown. The following is an example of a BSE configuration named myConfig, as shown in Figure 2-6.

Figure 2-6 BSE Configuration

Description of "Figure 2-6 BSE Configuration"

  • Use the Adapters folder to create inbound interaction with J.D. Edwards OneWorld. For example, you use the JDEdwards node in the Adapters folder to configure a service that updates J.D. Edwards OneWorld.

  • Use the Events folder (available for J2CA configurations only) to configure listeners that listen for events in J.D. Edwards OneWorld.

  • Use the Business Services folder (available for BSE configurations only) to test Web services created in the Adapters folder. You can also control security settings for the Web services by using the security features of the Business Services folder.

You can now define new targets to J.D. Edwards OneWorld.

Establishing a Connection (Target) for J.D. Edwards OneWorld

Part of the application definition includes adding a target for the adapter. Setting up the target in Application Explorer requires information which is specific to the target.

To browse the available Master Business Functions (MBF), you must first define a target to the system you use. After you define the target, it is automatically saved. You must connect to the system every time you start Application Explorer or after you disconnect.

When you launch Application Explorer, the left pane displays (as nodes) the application systems supported by Application Explorer, based on the adapters that are installed.

Defining a Target to J.D. Edwards OneWorld

To connect to an application system for the first time, you must define a new target.

When you define a target, you must restart the Oracle WebLogic Server to update the repository for run time purposes.

Note:

Before you create a new target, you must obtain the required library files for your J.D. Edwards OneWorld system and copy them to the appropriate location where the Oracle Application Adapter for J.D. Edwards OneWorld is deployed.

To define a target:

  1. In the left pane, expand the Adapters node.

    The applications systems supported by Application Explorer appear as nodes based on the adapters that are installed.

  2. Right-click the JDEdwards node and select Add Target.

    The Add Target dialog is displayed, as shown in Figure 2-7.

    Figure 2-7 Add Target Dialog

    Add Target Dialog Box
    Description of "Figure 2-7 Add Target Dialog"

    Perform the following steps:

    1. In the Name field, enter a descriptive name, for example, JDEConnection.

    2. In the Description field, enter a description for the target (optional).

    3. From the Type list, select JDE One World.

  3. Click OK.

    The JDE One World dialog appears, as shown in Figure 2-8.

    Figure 2-8 JDE One World Dialog

    Repository Tab
    Description of "Figure 2-8 JDE One World Dialog"

    1. In the Repository tab, enter the path to the GenJava repository in the Repository directory field.

      This is the location of the Java wrappers for accessing the J.D. Edwards OneWorld business functions, which are created by the GenJava development tool. Please note that this is a prerequisite step, which must be performed before a new target is created using Application Explorer.

      Note:

      Generating schemas requires the GenJava repository. For more comprehensive information on building the J.D. Edwards OneWorld Master Business Function repository, see the J.D. Edwards Interoperability Guide for OneWorld Xe. For information on how to use the GenJava program, see Using the GenJava Development Tool (Outbound Processing) in Appendix A, "Configuring J.D. Edwards OneWorld for Outbound and Inbound Processing".
    2. From the Schema style list, select ELEMENT_STYLE or ATTRIBUTE_STYLE.

    3. Click the Logon tab and enter the appropriate information for your target type based on the information in the following table. Fields marked with an asterisk are required, as shown in Figure 2-9.

    Parameter Description
    User id* A valid user ID for J.D. Edwards OneWorld.
    User password* The password associated with the user ID.
    JDE environment* The J.D. Edwards OneWorld environment, for example, DU7333. For more information about this parameter, see your J.D. Edwards OneWorld documentation or ask your J.D. Edwards OneWorld system administrator.
    Server IP address* The name of the server on which J.D. Edwards OneWorld is running. This can be the name of the server, for example, JDEOW, or its IP address.
    Server Port* The port number on which the server is listening, for example, 6009.
    User role This property setting depends on your J.D. Edwards OneWorld system version.
    • For B7333: You can leave this field blank.

    • For EnterpriseOne 8.10: You must specify *ALL.


  4. Click OK.

    The new target, JDEConnection, appears under the JDEdwards node, as shown in Figure 2-10.

    Description of "Figure 2-13 JDEdwards Target Node"

Editing a Target

To edit a target:

  1. In the left pane, ensure that the target you want to edit is disconnected.

  2. Right-click the target and select Edit.

    A window is displayed that enables you to edit the existing connection parameters.

  3. Modify the target information.

  4. Click OK.

    When you edit a target, you must restart the Oracle WebLogic Server to update the repository for run time purposes.

Deleting a Target

You can delete a target, rather than just disconnecting and closing it. When you delete the target, the node disappears from the list of J.D. Edwards OneWorld targets in the left pane of the explorer.

When you delete a connection, you must restart the Oracle WebLogic Server to update the repository for run time purposes.

To delete a target:

  1. Expand the Adapters node.

  2. Expand the JDEdwards node.

  3. Right-click the target to which you are connected (for example, JDEConnection), and select Delete.

    The node disappears from the list of available connections.

For information on how to view application system objects, see J.D .Edwards Interoperability Guide Release OneWorld XE.

Creating an XML Schema

To execute an MBF, the adapter must receive a request document through the J.D. Edwards OneWorld ThinNet API. The agent processes the request and sends an XML response document indicating the result. Application Explorer creates both the XML request schema and the XML response schema.

Creating a Request and a Response Schema

The following procedure explains how to create request and response schemas for a J.D. Edwards OneWorld business function. Application Explorer enables you to create XML schemas for this function.

  1. Connect to a J.D. Edwards OneWorld target as described in "Connecting to a Defined J.D. Edwards OneWorld Target".

  2. Expand the Services node.

  3. Expand the node of the MBF for which you want to create the schema.

  4. Expand and then select the node beneath the MBF, as shown in Figure 2-14.

  5. Click the parameters tab to view the parameter information Figure 2-15.

Generating WSDL (J2CA Configurations Only)

The procedure for generating WSDL (Web Service Definition Language) for request-response (outbound) services differs from that of generating WSDL for event notification (inbound) J2CA services of the adapter. The following sections describe each procedure.

Generating WSDL for Outbound Interaction

To generate a WSDL file for request-response service:

  1. Start Application Explorer and connect to a defined J.D. Edwards OneWorld target.

  2. Expand Services, JDEJAVA_CFIN, and then B0100033. Select GetEffectiveAddress.

  3. Right-click GetEffectiveAddress.

    The following menu is displayed, as shown in Figure 2-18.

    Figure 2-18 Create Outbound JCA Service (Request/Response) Option

    WSDL Context Menu
    Description of "Figure 2-18 Create Outbound JCA Service (Request/Response) Option"

  4. Select Create Outbound JCA Service (Request/Response).

    The Export WSDL dialog is displayed, as shown in Figure 2-19.

    Figure 2-19 Export WSDL Dialog

    Export WSDL dialog box
    Description of "Figure 2-19 Export WSDL Dialog"

  5. Accept the default name for the file.

    The .wsdl file extension is added automatically. By default, the names of WSDL files generated for request-response services end with _invoke, while those generated for event notification end with _receive.

  6. Click OK.

    The WSDL file is saved in the specified location.

Generating WSDL for Inbound Interaction

You cannot generate a WSDL for J.D. Edwards OneWorld event notification using Application Explorer. To generate a WSDL from the command prompt, you must perform the steps that are described in the following section.

You can create an inbound J2CA service only if the node that you selected supports events.

  1. Create a channel using Application Explorer under the J.D. Edwards Events node.

  2. Start the channel.

    Do not restart Oracle WebLogic Server after the channel is started.

  3. Send an inbound message from J.D. Edwards OneWorld.

  4. Capture the inbound message payload in the log file, which is located in the following directory based on your adapter installation:

    For Oracle SOA Suite:

    <ORACLE_HOME>\soa\thirdparty\ApplicationAdapters\config\configuration_name\log\iwaf_jca1500.log
    

    For OSB:

    <OSB_HOME>\Oracle_OSB1\3rdparty\ApplicationAdapters\config\configuration_name\log\iwaf_jca1500.log
    

    Alternatively, you can create a port using the File protocol under the Events node in Application Explorer, which disposes the event message to the file system.

  5. Use a third party tool (for example, XMLSpy) to create the XML schema (.xsd file) using the XML payload that was captured in the previous step.

  6. In the generated XML schema (.xsd file) perform the following modifications:

    1. Search for Schemas-jdedwards-com and replace it with iwaysoftware.

      <xs:schematargetNamespace="urn:Schemas-jdedwards-com:trans.response.JDESOOUT"      xmlns="urn:Schemas-jdedwards-com:trans.response.JDESOOUT" xmlns:xs=http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema elementFormDefault="qualified">
      

      to:

      <xs:schema      targetNamespace="urn:iwaysoftware:trans.response.JDESOOUT"      xmlns="urn:iwaysoftware:trans.response.JDESOOUT"xmlns:xs=http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema elementFormDefault="qualified">
      
    2. Cut the following syntax:

      <xs:element name="jdeResponse"><xs:complexType>  </xs:complexType>  </xs:element>
      
    3. Paste it before the following line:

      <xs:element name="transaction">
      
  7. Copy the XML schema (.xsd file) to the following directory based on your adapter installation:

    For Oracle SOA Suite:

    <ORACLE_HOME>\soa\thirdparty\ApplicationAdapters\config\configuration_name\schemas\JDEdwards\target_name\
    

    For OSB:

    <OSB_HOME>\Oracle_OSB1\3rdparty\ApplicationAdapters\config\configuration_name\schemas\JDEdwards\target_name\
    

    Note:

    Edit the created channel by providing the location of the schema (.xsd) file (as mentioned in step 7) in the PreParser tab of Application Explorer. For example:

    For Oracle SOA Suite:

    <ORACLE_HOME>\soa\thirdparty\ApplicationAdapters\config\configuration_name\schemas\JDEdwards\target_name\jde-schema.xsd
    

    For OSB:

    <OSB_HOME>\Oracle_OSB1\3rdparty\ApplicationAdapters\config\configuration_name\schemas\JDEdwards\target_name\jde-schema.xsd
    
  8. Open a command prompt and navigate to the base domain directory and and execute the setDomainEnv.sh file:

    <ORACLE_HOME>\user_projects\domains\base_domain\bin
    

    Navigate to the following Application Explorer directory based on your adapter installation:

    For Oracle SOA Suite:

    <ORACLE_HOME>\soa\thirdparty\ApplicationAdapters\tools\iwae\bin
    

    For OSB:

    <OSB_HOME>\Oracle_OSB1\3rdparty\ApplicationAdapters\tools\iwae\bin
    
  9. Execute the obadapter.bat file to set the environment.

  10. Based on your adapter installation, navigate to the following directory where the XML schema (.xsd file) is copied:

    For Oracle SOA Suite:

    <ORACLE_HOME>\soa\thirdparty\ApplicationAdapters\config\configuration_name\schemas\JDEdwards\target_name\
    

    For OSB:

    <OSB_HOME>\Oracle_OSB1\3rdparty\ApplicationAdapters\config\configuration_name\schemas\JDEdwards\target_name\
    
  11. Enter the following command to generate a WSDL:

    java -Diway.oem=oracle11g com.iwaysoftware.af.container.tools.wsdl.IWayWSILBrowser adapterhome adapter target channel schemaPrefix wsdlFileName
    

    where:

    adapterhome is the path to your ApplicationAdapters home. For example:

    For Oracle SOA Suite:

    <ORACLE_HOME>\soa\thirdparty\ApplicationAdapters\
    

    For OSB:

    <OSB_HOME>\Oracle_OSB1\3rdparty\ApplicationAdapters\
    

    adapter is the name of the adapter. For example, JDEdwards.

    target is the name of the adapter target you created in Application Explorer.

    channel is the name of the channel you created in Application Explorer.

    schemaPrefix is the prefix for the XSD schema. The schema file must be in the same directory where the Java command is executed, for example:

    java -Diway.oem=oracle11g com.iwaysoftware.af.container.tools.wsdl.IWayWSILBrowser C:\oracle\Middleware\Oracle_SOA1\soa\thirdparty\ApplicationAdapters\wsdls\JDEdwards jde812_tgt jde_ch Jde812_Schema Jde812_salesorder_receive.wsdl
    

    Once the command is executed, the following is displayed in the command window:

    Running Inbound WSDL generation tool...-> user.dir = java com.iwaysoftware.af.container.tools.wsdl.IWayWSILBrowser C:\oracle\Middleware\Oracle_SOA1\soa\thirdparty\ApplicationAdapters\wsdls\JDEdwards jde812_tgt jde_ch Jde812_Schema Jde812_salesorder_receive.wsdl -> Generating WSDL...-> Done.-> Writing WSDL 'C:\oracle\Middleware\Oracle_SOA1\soa\thirdparty\ApplicationAdapters\wsdls\Jde812_salesorder_receive.wsdl ' to disk...-> Done.
    

    Note:

    It is good practice to append _receive to the names of WSDL files that are generated for event notification services. This allows you to easily distinguish between them and those generated for request-response services.
  12. Stop the channel in Application Explorer.

Creating and Testing a Web Service (BSE Configurations Only)

You can generate a Web service (also known as a business service) using Application Explorer. You can explore the business function repository and generate Web services for the functions you want to use with the adapter. The following procedure uses an example called BusinessUnitExistenceCheck.

Note:

In a J2EE Connector Architecture (J2CA) implementation, Web services are not available. When the adapters are deployed to use J2CA, the Common Client Interface (CCI) provides integration services.

Creating a Web Service

To create a Web service for a business function:

  1. Expand the JDEdwards node and then the Services node.

  2. Expand the MBF, B1000012, also called BusinessUnitExistenceCheck.

  3. Right-click the node from which you want to create a business service and select Create Web Service.

    The Create Web Service dialog is displayed, as shown in Figure 2-20.

    Figure 2-20 Create Web Service Dialog

    Description of Figure 2-20 follows
    Description of "Figure 2-20 Create Web Service Dialog"

    You can add the business function as a method for a new Web service or as a method for an existing one.

      1. From the Existing Service Names list, select either <new service> or an existing service.

      2. In the Service Name field, specify a service name if you are creating a new service. This name identifies the Web service in the list of services under the Business Services node.

      3. Enter a description for the service (optional).

  4. Click Next.

    Perform the following steps:

    1. In the License Name field, select one or more license codes to assign to the Web service.

    2. In the Method Name field, leave the default method name.

    3. In the Description field, enter a brief description of the method (optional).

    4. In the DTD Directory field, specify a location where the Web service are saved. If you want to select a location different than the default, then click Browse and navigate to the desired location.

  5. Click OK.

    Application Explorer switches the view to the Business Services node, and the new Web service appears in the left pane.

  6. Right-click the new Web service and select Save WSDL from the menu.

    The Save dialog is displayed.

  7. Provide a name for the WSDL file and a location to save the WSDL file on your file system.

  8. Click Save.

Testing a Web Service

After a Web service is created, you can test it to ensure it functions properly. A test tool is provided for testing the Web service.

To test a Web service:

  1. Click the Business Services node to access your Web services.

  2. Expand the Services node.

  3. Select the name of the business service you want to test.

    The business service name appears as a link in the right pane.

  4. In the right pane, click the named business services link.

    The test option appears in the right pane. If you are testing a Web service that requires XML input, then an input field is displayed.

  5. Enter the appropriate input.

  6. Click Invoke.

    Application Explorer displays the results, as shown in Figure 2-21.

    Figure 2-21 Web Service XML Results

    XML test results
    Description of "Figure 2-21 Web Service XML Results"

Identity Propagation

If you test or execute a Web service using a third party XML editor, for example XMLSPY, then the user name and password values that you specify in the SOAP header must be valid and are used to connect to J.D. Edwards OneWorld. The user name and password values that you provided for J.D. Edwards OneWorld during target creation using Application Explorer are overwritten for this Web service request. The following is a sample SOAP header that is included in the WSDL file for a Web service:

<SOAP-ENV:Header>
  <m:ibsinfo xmlns:m="urn:schemas-iwaysoftware-com:iwse">
    <m:service>String</m:service>
    <m:method>String</m:method>
    <m:license>String</m:license>
    <m:disposition>String</m:disposition>
    <m:Username>String</m:Username>
    <m:Password>String</m:Password>
    <m:language>String</m:language>
  </m:ibsinfo>
</SOAP-ENV:Header>

You can remove the <m:disposition> and <m:language> tags from the SOAP header, since they are not required.

Configuring an Event Adapter

Events are generated by activity in a database or in an application system. You can use events to trigger an action in your application. For example, an update to a database can reflect an update to customer information. If your application must perform when this happens, then your application is a consumer of this event.

After you create a connection to your application system, you can add events using Application Explorer. To create an event, you must create a channel.

Note:

If you are using a J2CA configuration, then you must create a new channel for every event object and select this channel when you generate WSDL. Creating a channel is required for J2CA configurations only.

A channel represents configured connections to particular instances of back-end systems. For more information, see "Creating and Editing a Channel" .

Creating and Editing a Channel

The following section describes how to create a channel for your event. All defined event ports must be associated with a channel.

When you create, modify, or delete a channel, you must restart the Oracle WebLogic Server to recognize the change and update the repository for run time purposes. After successfully creating the channel and inbound WSDL file, close Application Explorer before you restart the application server.

Note:

If you are planning to integrate Oracle Application Adapter for J.D. Edwards OneWorld with BPM, BPEL, or OSB inbound process components, then do not start the channel. The channel is managed by the run-time server after the BPM, BPEL, or OSB process component is deployed. If you start the channel from Application Explorer for testing and debugging purposes, then stop it before run-time (when working with BPM, BPEL, or OSB process components).

Three channel types are available:

  • HTTP

  • TCP

  • File

Note:

Channels can be configured only on the system where the Oracle Application Adapter for J.D. Edwards OneWorld is installed.

The J.D. Edwards OneWorld Event Listener

Oracle Application Adapter for J.D. Edwards OneWorld Event Listener is designed specifically to provide J.D. Edwards OneWorld approved access to your business events. The J.D. Edwards OneWorld Event Listener refers to a specialized application that runs with J.D. Edwards OneWorld business functions and is called by the J.D. Edwards OneWorld application system.

The J.D. Edwards OneWorld application system provides the Event Listener with the information required to retrieve the event information for only the desired events. For information about configuring the J.D. Edwards OneWorld environment, see the J.D. Edwards Interoperability Guide for OneWorld.

The J.D. Edwards OneWorld Event Listener is called directly from the J.D. Edwards OneWorld application and is passed a Z-file record identifier. This identifier then generates a request document that is passed to the server for processing. The server retrieves the event information from the J.D. Edwards OneWorld system and propagates the information for integration with other application systems.

Configuring the J.D. Edwards OneWorld Event Listener

The J.D. Edwards OneWorld Event Listener is installed as part of the basic installation. The J.D. Edwards OneWorld Adapter is automatically installed in the appropriate directory. If the integration server is not installed on the same computer as the J.D. Edwards OneWorld application server, then you must configure the J.D. Edwards OneWorld Event Listener.

The J.D. Edwards OneWorld Event Listener is invoked by J.D. Edwards OneWorld for specific transactions as configured in the J.D. Edwards OneWorld environment.

The J.D. Edwards OneWorld Event Listener includes the following components:

  • The listener exit (IWOEvent), located under adapters_home\etc\jde, where adapters_home is <ORACLE_HOME>\Oracle_SOA1\soa\thirdparty\ApplicationAdapters. For example:

    For Oracle SOA Suite:

    <ORACLE_HOME>\soa\thirdparty\ApplicationAdapters\etc\jde\iwoevent.dll
    

    For OSB:

    <OSB_HOME>\Oracle_OSB1\3rdparty\ApplicationAdapters\etc\jde\iwoevent.dll
    

    The file extension varies depending on your operating system:

    • For Windows, the exit is iwoevent.dll.

    • For Sun Solaris, the exit is libiwoevent.so.

    • For HP-UX, the exit is libiwoevent.sl.

    • For AS/400, the exit is iwaysav.sav.

    • For IBM AIX, the exit is libiwoevent.so.

  • The listener configuration file (iwoevent.cfg), which must be created by the user.

The J.D. Edwards OneWorld Event listener exit is the function that passes the key fields for a record in the J.D. Edwards OneWorld outbound transaction tables to the integration server for processing by the inbound Oracle Application Adapter for J.D. Edwards OneWorld. The J.D. Edwards OneWorld Event listener is deployed under the J.D. Edwards OneWorld Enterprise Server. The Java class for the J.D. Edwards OneWorld Event listener is called IWOEvent (the file extension depends on the operating system) and is case-sensitive.

  1. Create a folder called Outbound under the JDE structure on the JDE Enterprise Sever, for example:

    \\JDEdwards\E812\DDP\Outbound
    
  2. Copy the iwoevent.dll file in the new Outbound folder.

  3. Create an environment variable, IWOEVENT_HOME, to point to the directory containing the iwoevent.dll file.

    • On Windows: Add IWOEVENT_HOME to the system environment variables.

    • On UNIX: Add the following command to your start-up script:

      export IWOEVENT_HOME =/directory_name
      
  4. On the J.D. Edwards OneWorld Server, create an iwoevent.cfg file in the defined directory, IWOEVENT_HOME.

    The J.D. Edwards OneWorld Event listener requires connection information for the associated adapter to initiate events properly. This information is contained in the iwoevent.cfg file. You must create this file and add the connection information to it. The J.D. Edwards OneWorld Event Listener requires connection information for the associated integration server to function properly. This information is contained in the iwoevent.cfg file. The iwoevent.cfg file has three distinct sections:

    • Common

      The common section of the configuration file contains basic configuration options. Currently, only the trace option is supported.

      To set the trace option, select on or off.

      common.trace=on|off
      

      Where on sets the tracing to on and off sets the tracing to off. Off is the default value.

    • Alias

      The alias section of the configuration file contains the connection information required to send transactions to specific servers. Currently, the Oracle Application Adapter for J.D. Edwards OneWorld supports 100 entries (alias names) in the configuration file.

      The alias values to these entries are as follows:

      Alias.aliasname={ipaddress|dsn}:port, trace={on|off}
      

      Where:

      aliasname is the symbolic name given to the connection.

      ipaddress|dsn is the IP address or DSN name for the server containing Oracle Application Adapter for J.D. Edwards OneWorld (required).

      port is the port defined for Oracle Application Adapter for J.D. Edwards OneWorld in the TCP channel configuration (required).

      trace={on|off} sets the tracing to on for the particular alias.

    • Trans

      The trans section of the configuration file contains transaction information required to route J.D. Edwards OneWorld transactions to specified servers. If a particular J.D. Edwards OneWorld transaction is not defined to an alias, then it is sent to all aliases. The trans values to these entries are as follows:

      trans.jdeTransactionName=alias1,alias2,aliasn
      

      Where jdeTransactionName is the JDE-defined name for the outbound transaction and alias1,alias2,aliasn is the list of aliases to which the transactions are sent.

    The following is a sample entry for iwoevent.cfg that supplies connection information:

    common.trace=on
    
    alias.edamcs1=172.1.1.1:3694
    alias.edamcs1t=172.1.1.1:3694, trace=on
    alias.edamcs2=222.2.2.2:1234
    
    trans.JDESOOUT=edamcs1t,edamcs2
    trans.JDEPOOUT=edamcs1
    
  5. Create a folder using the alias names that are specified in the iwoevent.cfg file under the defined directory, IWOEVENT_HOME. For example:

    \\JDEdwards\E812\DDP\Outbound\edamcs1
    

Runtime Overview

After J.D. Edwards OneWorld starts the J.D. Edwards OneWorld Event listener, the listener accesses the configuration file, called iwoevent.cfg (case-sensitive). Based on the information in the configuration file, the listener sends the event notification to the integration server. All log information is saved in a file called iwoevent.log. The iwoevent.log file is created in the outbound folder where the iwoevent.dll and iwoevent.cfg files are located.

Modifying the JDE.INI File for Outbound and Inbound Processing

This section describes the settings that are required in the JDE.INI file for the XML call object kernel (outbound and inbound processing).

Open the JDE.INI file and modify the [JDENET_KERNEL_DEF6] and [JDENET_KERNEL_DEF15] sections as follows:

[JDENET_KERNEL_DEF6]krnlName=CALL OBJECT KERNELdispatchDLLName=XMLCallObj.dlldispatchDLLFunction=_XMLTransactionDispatch@28maxNumberOfProcesses=1numberOfAutoStartProcesses=1
[JDENET_KERNEL_DEF15]krnlName=XML TRANSACTION KERNELdispatchDLLName=XMLTransactions.dlldispatchDLLFunction=_XMLTransactionDispatch@28maxNumberOfProcesses=1numberOfAutoStartProcesses=1

The parameters containing an underscore (_) and @28 are for Windows NT operating systems only. For other operating systems, replace the parameters with the values in the following table:

Operating System Call Object dispatch DLLName XML Trans dispatch DLLName
AS400 XMLCALLOBJ XMLTRANS
HP9000B libxmlcallojb.sl libxmltransactions.lo
Sun or RS6000 libxmlcallojb.so Libxmltransactions.so

Note:

The J.D. Edwards OneWorld installation for version B7333(XE) does not include [JDENET_KERNEL_DEF15]. As a result, if you are using version B7333(XE), you must manually add it to the jde.ini file. For all other J.D. Edwards OneWorld versions, [JDENET_KERNEL_DEF15] is included with the installation.
