Hi Jai,

If your requirement is just to transfer a PDF document from one file system to another without any transformation,then probably u can follow these steps, else if you can explain your scenario,it would be helpful.

Do the folllowing:

1. Create a dummy Data Type.

2. Create a Message Type for the Data Type of step 1.

3. Create the outboundand and inbound message interaces using the Message Type of step 2.

4. No Message amd Inteface Mapping is required.

5. In Configuration , create a Receiver Determination, Interface Determination , Sender and Receiver Agreement as usual. But when it comes to Interface Determination, there dont specify any INTERFACE MAPPING.

If so, use the adpter modules in the sender side to do the same.

In the adpater modules, you can read the data from pdf document and convert specific to your structure and then do the mapping etc

To know about Adapter modules-

Jai,

Like pointed out by moorthy, you need to deploy to create an Adapter Module for the sender File adapter.

Just comibine the blog you have and the How to develop Adapter Module doc given by moorhty and created your module Archive and then deploy this on your J2EE engine and call the same in your file adapter in the modules section do read content from the PDF into your XML.
