    It took me a while with getting XI terminology - the sequence that a message has to pass ...

    Inbound file adapter (w.r.t XI) reads file and passes the message to Outbound I/F (w.r.t to the sender) which in turn via Interface mapping (and message mapping which is optional) is passed to the Inbound interface (w.r.t receiver) and then to the outbound adapter (w.r.t XI) before appearing at receiver system.

    The message leads me to believe you may have Outbound Interface defined but may have missing Inbound I/F and Interface mapping - pls. verify design steps.

      hi sanjay,

      thanks for your reply, I have defined the inbound and the out bound in the desing but while defining in the configuration for inbound the Interface mapping i have defined is not shown in the search help.

      im not sure why it is not shown in the configuration part.

      pls let me know if u have any idea
