This chapter provides instructions to create, import, export, and work with UN/EDIFACT inbound and outbound applications using iWay Integration Tools (iIT). In addition, you will learn how to create an iWay Integration Application (iIA) for deployment based on the sample data.

What will the Application do?

The iIAs will be used to transform EDIFACT to XML for inbound processing and XML to EDIFACT for outbound processing.

The inbound application channel creates an XML representation of an EDIFACT inbound message, a functional acknowledgement (APERAK or CONTROL), and an XML-formatted validation report. The documents are routed to designated folders based on the success or failure results of the transformation and EDIFACT validation.

The outbound application channel creates an EDIFACT message from XML and a XML formatted validation report.
