Module Development for XI3.0 Adapters

Hello,

we are currently trying to develop a xi 3.0 adapter module. Modules are a way to expand the functionalities of a xi adapter, in our cas the file adapter.

Our module should be used to perform a more complex transformation from flat file to xml.

We know, that we have to develop the modul as a stateless session bean, and that we have to implement some modul-interfaces.

What we are missing are some examples, code fragments and some more detailed informations.

Anybody out there, who can help us?

Thanks in advance,

Frank Winkler

    Hi frank,

    Check the XI-3.0 help documentation. Develop your own module. You have to add this module name and the parameters in the configuration part of the communication channel

    Regards

    Frank,

    Haven't been able to find the docs either.

    I see some alternatives for you:

    - use a standalone J2SE file adapter with Dispatcher

    - do Java mapping

    - if you need to do routing, you need XML content

    option is then to use business process

    Or is there another reason for using a module?

    Kind regards, Guy Crets

    Hi Frank,

    I've faced the same problem and submitted a note to SAP.

    In SP9 of Netweaver, the documentation will be updated with the document 'Adapter Development'.

    At my request I've received a preleased version of this document. I'm not sure if I can forward this document. Maybe you can create a note requesting this document or wait for SP9. Which will be released soon.

    Kind Regards,

    Christiaan Schaake.

    There's a How-To Guide that describes Module Development (How To Create Modules for the J2EE Adapter Engine )

    https://websmp105.sap-ag.de/~form/sapnet?_SHORTKEY=01200252310000071155&_SCENARIO=01100035870000000202

    and a sample Module comes with XI. Details are available throught the SAP Help http://help.sap.com/saphelp_nw04/helpdata/en/e9/61e1407e858031e10000000a1550b0/frameset.htm

    General info on the Module Processor is here

    https://websmp105.sap-ag.de/~form/sapnet?_SHORTKEY=01200252310000071155&_SCENARIO=01100035870000000202

    The easiest way to deploy the module is through Netweaver Developer Studio. Alternatively you can go through SDM.

    Hope that's a starting point.

    regards,

    Peter
