  Q.1: Define webMethods Trading Partner agreements(TPAs) ?

Answer-1: Administrator

 


Optionally, you can define trading partner agreements for pairs of partners. Each TPA contains specific information for two trading partners, where one partner represents a sender and the other represents the receiver. You can create applications that use TPA information to tailor how documents are exchanged.


Each TPA must have a unique combination of the following:


Partner that represents the sender


Partner that represents the receiver


Type of TPA, represented by the "Agreement ID"


 


























TPA field TPA1 TPA2
Partner that represents the sender A B
Partner that represents the receiver B A
Type of TPA(Agreement ID) EDITPA EDITPA

 


 


  Q.2: How do we create and use processing Rules in Trading Networks ?

Answer-1: Administrator

When you add a new processing rule, you have three Add ?? options for processing rules: you can add it above or below an existing processing rule or add the new rule to the bottom of the processing rules list. Set the sender, Receiver and document type in criteria tab. select the service execution task(check box) in  Action tab.


  Q.3: What is the purpose of Default processing Rule ?

Answer-1: Administrator

If a document matches more than one processing rule, Trading Networks uses the first Processing rule it encounters. As a result, the order in which you maintain your processing Rules is important because Trading Networks checks for a matching processing rule in that order. Keep rules with specific criteria before rules with general criteria. You should Also set up a default processing rule that you want Trading Networks to use "when a Document does not match any of the other processing rules. Place the default-processing rule last in the list".

  Q.7: What is an ACL ?

Answer-1: Tomas

An ACL controls access to packages, folders, and other elements (such as services, IS document types, and specifications) at the group level. An ACL identifies groups of users that are allowed to access an element (Allowed Groups) and/or groups that are not allowed to access an element (Denied Groups). When identifying Allowed Groups and Denied Groups, you select from groups that you have defined previously.


 


There are four different kinds of access: List, Read, Write and Execute.


-> List controls whether a user sees the existence of an element and its metadata; that is, its input and output, settings, and ACL permissions. The element will be displayed on screens in the Developer and the Integration Server Administrator.


-> Read controls whether a user can view the source code and metadata of an element.


-> Write controls whether a user can update an element. This access also controls whether a user can lock, rename or delte an element or assign an ACL to it.


-> Execute controls whether a user can execute a service.

  Q.10: What is a canonical document ?

Answer-1: Pavan

A Canonical document is a standardized representation that a document might assume while it is passing through the webMethods Integration Platform. A canonical document acts as the intermediary data format between resources. For example, in an implementation that accepts purchase orders from companies, one of the steps in the process converts the purchase order document to a company's standard purchase order format. This format is called the 'canonical' form of the purchase order document. The canonical document is published, delivered, and passed to services that process purchase orders.


  Q.11: What is IDATA object ?

  Q.14: Explain TN Flat File Scenario?

Answer-1: Administrator

We have to create gateway service.We will have a service called tn.routeFlatFile by using the service we will be sending the document to TN. we have to map pipeline variables to a doc. name tn_params(we need to give the name as it is)


In TN -> document type -> flatfile -> document name,pipeline matching variables.


TN: client will send the doc once only and that file will be stored in the database. when any problem occurs at receiver end,we can resubmit the document from the database.
