Defining a Interface for outbound-IDOC XML


I am sending IDOCs ORDERS02 to creditors as XML message.

So far, I didn't sepcify the reciever-interface in the repository.

Now I need to implement a simple mapping for the szenario. I understand, I need the description of the recieving interface in the repository to implement the mapping and I can't use the original IDOC description as reciever interface, because that would be sending an IDOC instead of XML. Do I really have to design the reciever interface manually or is there a possibility to copy all the data types etc. from the IDOC into my namespace?

Thanks for help, Kathrin!

    In XI 3.0 you will be able to create an interface with the IDOC structure.

    In XI 2.0 you need to use a trick: In the receiver determination you do not take the IDOC name space, just type any other name space, then the message is going out in XML format. If you need mapping, you have to do the mapping with the same name space. It does not matter that the interface/name space combination does not exist in the repository.
