Here is a brief overview of the steps involved in setting up an Integration Repository:

  1. Create and configure an Integration Repository. This is a component of class atg.adapter.integrations.IntegrationRepository. Configure the properties described in the Integration Repository section.

  2. Create the Integration Repository’s definition file, as described in the Defining an Integration Repository section.

  3. Create and configure your local repository. The local repository is a normal SQL repository. See SQL Repository Overview in the ATG Repository Guide for more information.

  4. Create the database schema for your local repository.

  5. Create any mapping files you desire for each item descriptor in the Integration Repository. See Mapping for more information.

  6. Create a subclass of IntegrationRepositoryView for each remote system you need to query.

  7. Create Commands that correspond to each of the command operations you want to define for your Integration Repository. See the Remote Procedure Calls chapter.

To set up a complete integration with a remote system, you will also need to perform many tasks that are outside the scope of this chapter. You will need to configure the transport layer that connects ATG to the remote system. You will also typically want to create a portlet (ATG Portal gear) or set of form pages to display and modify data from the remote system.
