Using Style Sheets

While an HTML form-based method of integration is available, XML is the standard protocol for interacting with third-party Order Management Systems and Siebel Systems encourages its use.

Transact supports any XML format that contains sufficient information for the integration task. Transact accepts and subsequently returns any data element that it cannot identify—for example, a unique identifier used by the third-party Order Management System.

Transact uses XSLT stylesheets to convert XML generated to the generic DTD into a desired XML format. In the XSLT, elements from the XML input are identified and mapped to their desired XML element output. Static and calculated content can also be included.
