Where to define Datatypes

0 Kudos

Hi everyone,

Currently I am creating several scenario's.

However I can't find the proper way to define the datatypes (integer, decimal, string) of the inbound/outbound values.

Do I need to define those in my atoms (xml) or do I need to define these once I generated the xsd files.

Because inside the xsd files I see that everything is of type: string, and I don't know where B1if is getting this information from.

Kind regards,

Marcel Kieboom

Hi Marcel,

I'm not sure what you mean but in B1i using XML and XLST there is no way and no need to define datatypes. When handing over a XML to the API, the API handles interpretation and visa versa.

I hope this helps.

Hi Roel,

Thank you for your reply.

Well I mean, retrieving an object from sbo through the integration framework results in some xsl atoms etc. and when generating the xsd files, this is for example one part of the content.

<xs:element name="GetStockTransferResult" form="qualified">



                                                            <xs:element name="DocEntry" form="qualified" type="xs:string"></xs:element>

                                                            <xs:element name="DocNum" form="qualified" type="xs:string"></xs:element>

                                                            <xs:element name="DocObjectCode" form="qualified" type="xs:string"></xs:element>

                                                            <xs:element name="CreationDate" form="qualified" type="xs:string"></xs:element>

So there you find for the DocEntry the type="xs:string" and handing all data over as a string is pretty anoying.

Hope this makes it more clear.

Kind regards,
