- In Production
- Press the Submit EDI button which is active only after document is Completed.
Successful EDI Submission
- Runs process that:
- Look up the DocumentType to see what "Doc Type" to use.
- Look up the BPartner
- Look up right "EDI Format", "EDI Processor" for BPartner and DocType.
- Read the EDI Format and the document lines to construct the EDI document.
- Get the data strings using ColumnID, and use Type to decide which separator to use.
- Order them by position.
- Truncate lengths, validate usage.
- Using the info from C_EDIProcessor submit the EDI document.
- Use the scheduler to schedule a process that will poll according to the rules configured on C_EDIProcessor
- Look up the Business Partner and EDI_DocType to determine which format to use to parse the file and which document type to create.
- EDI element ST01 stores EDI code. Read this code and look it up in C_EDI_DocType.EDI_Code to return C_EDI_DocType_ID
- EDI element ISA06 stores Interchange Sender ID. This represents a Business Partner. Read this code and look it up in C_Bpartner.C_EDI_Sender to return C_BPartner_ID.
- Use C_EDI_DocType_ID and C_BPartner_ID to find the right C_BPartner_EDI record. This will tell you which doctype (AD_DocType_ID) to create, and which format (C_EDI_Format_ID) to use to translate the file.
- As an alternative, C_EDIProcessor could define a JMS queue to post to.
Then we could manage the movement of the data with ServiceMix.
