    Hey,

    Xi is basically a middleware tool and not a tool used primarily for data validation, it is recommended that all the data validation shud be done one the sender system. latest vey of PI 7.1 will have some data validation functionalities, but as of now it is advised to do the validation on the sender system..

    thanx.

    • It depends on your message definitions.

      For example, if you have external .xsd definitions and you basically want to check if the input XML is valid for that schema, you can easily achieve that in java coding (within a java mapping or a module).

      Other than that, if you want to really validate the field values (validation against some possible values, expected formats, etc.) you have some alternatives. If it is only in a few fields and the logic is really simple, you could do it in mapping. But the recomendation would really to code the validation in the sender system itself (or create an application specific for that).

    Hi,

    My suggestion would be to do all the validations in the application system itself and send the data to and from XI. If business requirements and clients requirements cannot be in the applicaiton system then you can try to do in XI.
