MI Generic Sync - SyncException (Method <xxx> is not registered!)


I am having a problem with Generic Sync, and I wonder if anyone can help.

This is a simple "update a table" sync running from an AWT application on SP19, with JDK1.4.2_12.

Here is the code (it is pretty standard):

OutboundContainer out = outfactory.createOutboundContainer(VisibilityType.SEPARATED, R3_FUNCTION);
out.addItem("RFID_TAG", "000012");

I put a canned key/pair in for illustration.

The R3_FUNCTION (in my case "SYNC_RFID") is present in BWAFMAPP, and maps to a Wrapper Function. When tested, the Function Module itself happily accepts a tag and updates the table correctly.

However, when I attempt a sync from the MI client, I keep getting a <b>Method SYNC_RFID is not registered!</b> error (the code is wrapped in a try - catch SyncException block)

Has anyone seen this before? The exception is thrown immediately - there isn't a hint of a network connection attempt. I have synced the application many times from home page (with no errors), but the "not registered" error refuses to disappear.

Have I forgotten a critical step?

Hello David

Every Class that extends the InboundProcessor API provided by MI should be registered. In this case you wouldnt have registered the same. The following piece of code should help you solve your problem

public class MyInboundProcessor implements InboundProcessor {
    void register(){
        InboundProcessorRegistry inboundreg = InboundProcessorRegistry.getInstance();
        if (!inboundreg.isRegistered(SYNC_RFID)) {
            inboundreg.register(new MyInboundProcessor());

Please try this and hope this helps.

Best Regards
