submitted article for writing custom action blocks

I wrote a step-by-step guide to writing xMII 11.5 custom action blocks and uploaded it through the content submission system over two weeks ago. Does it normally take over two weeks to get the content published (or rejected)?

I've got a couple follow-up articles in the works - should I "self-publish" these to the xMII wiki instead? Any opinions? Is there any difference in benefits to publishing as an article, or blog, or wiki?

I realize this is a general question and likely would elicit more feedback in a more suitable forum, but since the article content is specific to xMII and many xMII developers inhabit this forum, I thought I'd ask here first.

Thanks,

-tim

    Tim,

    The delay is pretty common, there's a lot of content that gets submitted and has to be reviewed and validated before it will make it live on the SDN. My recommendation is to keep submitted via the Submission system and then provide links to the docs from the Wiki, this will, in the long run, help to reduce clutter and navigation issues. Glad to hear that you are working so adamently on xMII and developing content of your own.

    We should take a conversation offline to open up some lines of communication between our groups.

    You'll probably want to update it for version 12.0, also, since there are quite a few differences (some obvious, some not, some documented, most not). ;-(

    The article was published today:

    Creating" target="_blank">www.sdn.sap.com/irj/servlet/prt/portal/prtroot/com.sap.km.cm.docs/library/xapps/xmii/20071008-s_1012200763600am_v1.pdf">Creating SAP xMII 11.5 User-Defined Action Blocks

    I'm about half-way finished with a follow-up article which, hopefully, will work its way through the submission queue a little quicker than this one.

    Please feel free to post questions, comments, criticism, or whatever. I can take it...

      Hi, Tim.

      Good stuff. In regard to " I added an additional requirement of defining an interface transaction that the delegated transaction must "implement" which is done simply by having the same input/output properties", that's pretty much the intent of the concept of reference documents and reference schemas, and there is some special capability in the XMLDataType object to enable you to implement this sort of functionality fairly easily (and dynamically).
