Using the Interlink Object

After you instantiate an Interlink object, use the Interlink object to:

  • Populate the input buffer

  • Send the data to the Interlink plug-in (by using the Execute method)

  • Fetch the outputs from the buffer

  • Check for status and error messages

After the Business Interlink object is instantiated, you can assign values from constants, PeopleSoft variables, or record fields to the inputs of that Business Interlink object.

When you execute the Business Interlink object, it loads the appropriate Business Interlink Plug-in and passes itself to that Business Interlink Plug-in. The Business Interlink Plug-in processes the input data, passing the input values of the Business Interlink object to the external system and then fills the output values of the Business Interlink object (if there are outputs).
