XCM Extension

I want to extend some components from ../sap/configuration/ipcconfig-data.xml in ../customer/configuration/ipcconfig-data.xml. I have tried following the SAP-CRM-XCM Extension Concepts (without success).

The component in the sap xml file is:

<component id="characteristics">
 <configs>
  <config id="default">
   <params>
    <param name="characteristics.nocolumns" value="1" description=""/>
    <param name="characteristics.showdetails" value="T" description=""/>
    <param name="characteristics.showinvisibles" value="F" description="show_inv_cstic"/>
    <param name="characteristics.detailsinwindow" value="F" description=""/>
   </params>
  </config>
 </configs>
</component>

I want to extend the "characteristics.nocolumns" param to have "3" value in the customer xml file.

Has anyone else had success or failure. If success, can this be done and what is the proper syntax? If failure, can this be done or is there an issue in the xcm extension?

Thanks,

Tony

    You can change this parameter through XCM administration for your Web application (e.g if b2b) :

    under http:// : /b2b/admin/xcm/ init.do

    (you need J2EE administrator psw)

    Define your "characteristic" component. After saving you can find the value in file ..\SYS\global\xcm\crm.b2b

    Let me know if this help,

      Thanks Iordan

      Added the following to:

      <i><j2ee_app>\root\WEB-INF\xcm\customer\configuration\ipcconfig-data.xml</i>

      <i>< ... ></i>
        <component isa:extends="../component[@id='characteristics']">
          <configs>
            <config id="characteristics_default_wt" isa:base="default">
              <params>
                <param name="characteristics.nocolumns" value="3" description="" savevalue="T"/>
                <param name="characteristics.showdetails" value="F" description="" savevalue="T"/>
              </params>
            </config>
          </configs>
        </component>
      <i>< ... ></i>

      Added the following to:

      <i><j2ee_app>\root\WEB-INF\xcm\customer\configuration\ipcscenario-config.xml</i>

      <i>< ... ></i>
        <scenario name="isacatalog_wt" shorttext="" defaultscenario="true" isa:extends="../scenario[@name='isacatalog']">
          <configparams>
            <configparam name="characteristicsdata" value="characteristics_default_wt" savevalue="default"/>
          </configparams>
        </scenario>
      <i>< ... ></i>

      Is this correct? (I should see 3 columns in the IPC but instead I only see 1. I have also tried changing the appearance component so that appearance.showstatuslights is true but I still get the plain text.) Any more helpful ideas?

      Thanks
