WHINT MessageTrigger Job

2

Functionality

In case you want to start an interface without scheduling a polling sender adapter (e.g. file) and you need a reliable trigger for a message transfer, this solution helps to set up any scenario easily. An XML message with a generic structure is sent to the messaging runtime with the parameters you have defined in the trigger job. Based on the parameters you can proceed with any interfacing scenario (call a web service/REST/HTTP URL, read a file using WHINT FileReader Adapter, …).


Prerequisites

  • Deploy the SCA/EAR file provided by Whitepaper InterfaceDesign using NWDS/JSPM/SUM/Telnet
  • Define an Integrated Configuration (ICO) or iFlow that reflects the scenario

Usage

  • Schedule the job from NWA -> Operations -> Jobs -> Java Scheduler
  • Add Task with Job name MessageTriggerJob
  •  Parameters:
    • Scenario: <name/description of the scenario>
    • System: WHINT_MTJ
    • Further scenario parameters as name/value pairs
    • The scheduling should be done according to your business needs (hourly, Mon-Fri between 8:00 and 18:00)


Example

You need to pick up exchange rates without deleting them from the source folder, or you do not want to send a request message from SAP ERP to receive the latest updates (e.g. master data from a CMS). Set up the MessageTrigger Job in NWA and define the scheduling according to your needs.
