XML Converter

The XML converter uses no integration object metadata. The rules for converting between XML documents and property sets are essentially the same as the XML Hierarchy Converter. This service, however, does not create an XML hierarchy property set, but instead the XML document's root element becomes a Type top-level property set (for example, Service Method Arguments). The service is intended for importing and exporting hierarchical data (arguments, definitions, and so on) and for passing property set arguments to and from business services.

NOTE:  When using this business service, you should not specify an output argument name. The Siebel application automatically maps the newly generated property set to the specified output process property.

Figure 6 shows the translation of an XML document into a property set representation within Siebel XML, and back again.
