B2B Sterling Integrator Code-list Import Automation

IBMå¨ Sterling B2B IntegratoråÊuses code pairs in code lists to identify items in transactions between two or more trading partners.
Code lists are dynamic and are stored in a database.
From the Trading Partner menu, you can create, edit, copy, create versions, and enable and disable code lists.
There are two ways to create/update the code list.
1). From the Trading Partner menu, you can create, edit, copy, create versions, and enable and disable code lists.
2). Import the code list using Resource Manager.
Note : Resource needs to be imported should be Sterling Integrator supported XML format.
How you create Sterling supported XML format of resources ??
A). Create Map to convert input data to Sterling Integrator supported XML file.
B). Import the converted XML using Resource Import Tool.
Overheads in step (A) :
Map development as per need, translation using translation engine.
Overheads in step (B) :
Generate XML using Map, Launch Sterling GUI, rectify errors etc.
Combine step (A) and step (B).

What you need to do now ??
Just drop the standard input file in one pre-defined folder !!!

What we would achieve using this automation !!
This business process takes care of following things :
1). Picking up of input file from directory.
2). Translate it into the standard XML data supported by Sterling Integrator.
3). Import the translated XML into Sterling Integrator.
4). Let the user aware of status (Success and Failure) of import of resource via SMTP.
5). Failure SMTP message contains a brief description of failed data.
