Creating XML Integration Objects with the DTD Wizard

Siebel eAI provides two different wizards to create XML integration objects. An XML integration object is essentially an integration object with a base object type of XML. This wizard parses an external Document Type Definition (DTD) file to create an XML integration object.

To create an integration object

  1. Select File > New Object.
  2. Select the EAI tab.
  3. Double-click the Integration Object icon.
  4. Complete the Integration Object Builder initial page:
    1. Select the project from the first drop-down list.
    2. Select EAI DTD Wizard as the Business Service.
    3. Navigate to the path to the location of the DTD or XML file that you want to use as the basis of the DTD and click Next.
    4. NOTE:  The Simplify Integration Object Hierarchy option creates a simpler and flatter internal representation of the XML integration object. Please note that this does not change the external representation. Having a simpler internal representation makes declarative data mapping easier.

  5. Select the source object and give it a unique name, and then click Next.
  6. Click on the plus sign to expand the list and select or clear the fields based on your business requirements.
  7. Click Next to go to the final page to review messages generated during this process and take necessary action.
  8. Click Finish to complete the process.
  9. You will see the integration object you created in the Integration Objects list, as shown in the following figure.

NOTE:  You must review the integration objects and the integration components created by the Wizard and complete their definitions based on your requirements.
