BICAdapterMetadata.xml file missing


We are in the process of installing and configuring our PI 7.0 system along with the Seeburger Generic EDI Adapter 1.7.1.

Part of the install for Seeburger includes the creation of the BIC adapter. The documentation makes reference to the file BICAdapterMetadata.xml which should be in the directory data\AdapterBIC\metadata. But this file does not exist in the zip file we downloaded from the Service Marketplace.

Does anyone know where we should get this file from?

My previous answer was crap My aplogies.

Rechecked everything, and now it makes sense.

BICAdapterMetadata.xml does not exist in my DVD as well and it makes sense as well.

Here is why,

1. The AdapterMetadata.xml file is used to import the adapter metadata into the IR of XI. There is no BIC adapter from Seeburger, rather BIC is nothing but a bunch of modules from Seeburger to convert EDI to XML and vice versa. As there is no Adapter per-se called BIC, there will be no Metadata File for BIC.

2. For other Adapters, AS2, FTP, etc as there is a Adapter in the true sense there is a AdapterMeatadata file for these adapters.
