New MDC, XI Issue


2 things:


I am trying to connect a first IDES client to the MDS for checking Extraction capabilities. I was following instructions ConfigGuide Harmonization+Central MDM, page 23 and fell about some pain-points.

I downloaded MDM Content on the XI as described and imported Design Objects in the xi-repository. I've got a Software Component MDM 3.00, which is based upon some other basic stuff and I created an own component based upon MDM 3.00 (usage dependency, install. time)

When importing my new component, which I want to use for the IDES, I get the MDM-stuff under Subdirectory Bascic Objects (German: Basis-Objekte). The config guide tells, I shall create the namespace - - under my own component, where i shall copy (later on), stuff from the mdm component like mappings. I can't do that, because then I get the message: same namespace - where did i go wrong?


Concerning customizing on the MDS:

under ID-Mapping -- make XI File Settings -- there table: Key-Mapping-Framework... what to put there? what is a keymapping factory class?


customizing - Extraction Object:

when setting up process chain for inbound extraction I get the message: "No extraction objects exist for master data client IDES" - I suppose I get those by Replication of Metadata, but before that, I have to have my XI-scenario going, right ?

thanx for input,
