Mapping AIA Canonical Objects best practices
By sathya.phanindra on Aug 20, 2009
Here are some of the best practices that are adopted by Oracle PIP Developers. If you are new to PIP and want to know what to look for when mapping Enterprise Business Message (EBM) in your XSLT transformation, please follow below best practices.
Select EBO based on Business Concept and not based on number of fields that match.
Use Specification group cautiously, avoid if possible.
Customize EBO for missing fields/Business Concepts
Use Predefined corecom: prefixed Elements or DataTypes for customization.
Refer to XMAN reports for understanding XREF/DVM and functional mapping of existing connectors
Map Flags to Indicator types.
Map fields semantically.
Signup for FP and 2 day EBO training.
Use appropriate Operations (EBMs).
Do not map just based on Data types
Do not map just based on field name.
Avoid creating your own data types.
Don't Customize if Custom stub is not present.
