External Definitions

Hi Friends,

There is a requirement for external definition to import. I got one file from client text file having xml data. So i have save as to .XSD format and tested in XI while uploading into external definitions.

As per my knowledge, .XSD/wsdl/dtd file can be used for external definitions. And, it acts as Message type so create MI .

So , if we request from client , is there specific format is there for .XSD??? Is it only message type else data type possible ???

How to guide the client to get the .XSD files?

Thank you

Hi Deva,

first convert XML file in to XSD,for that you can use XML Editors ALTOVA XML Spy or Styalus studio to conver XML to XSD.

you can get free trail versions available.

The XML to XSD conversion process very easy , just google it.

if you have XSD then you no need to create Data type and Message Type.
