Imported Archives (XSLT/Java)Locate this document in the navigation structure


You can also implement XSLT and Java mappings yourself and save them as archives in the Enterprise Services Repository. This enables you to reuse mapping programs that already exist. Mapping programs from imported archives are executed on the J2EE Engine of the Integration Server.


You can also import archives in the SAP Partner Connectivity Kit (PCK). PCK users should replace the terms Enterprise Services Repository (ES Repository), Enterprise Services Builder (ES Builder) and Integration Builder with PCK in the following sections.


You have already implemented an XSLT or Java mapping and packed it in a Jar or Zip file. The file name (including path) of the archive must not be longer than 180 characters.


In the case of Java archives, it is very important that the archive contains the compiled classes (*class). Java source files are ignored by the Integration Builder and the mapping runtime.


Details about the options that you have in XSLT and Java are contained in the XSLT Mapping and Java Mapping sections. It is also possible to call other mapping programs from a mapping program (see: References Between Mapping Programs ).

Displaying and Changing Imported Mapping Programs in the ES Builder



Display Program

(corresponds to double-clicking the XSLT program)

Displays the selected XSLT program

Change Program

Changes the selected XSLT program. In an ES Builder editor you can either change lines or import another XSLT program. You must edit Java mappings externally and then import them again.

Open in Client Browser

Displays the selected program in the client browser. To display the selected mapping file, start the ES Builder from the default browser on the PC for class - or xsl -files.

When displaying imported mapping programs, the viewer shows the encryption used to display the characters of a file:

  • In the case of XML files (XML, XSD, XSL), the ES Builder can determine the encryption exactly, as it is specified in the header of the XML document.

  • The ES Builder uses a default encryption for all other files: Latin-1 (ISO-8859-1) for files with the extension .properties , and UTF-8 for all others. To change the encryption, use the list box in the header area of the viewer. The options are the standard encryption of Java and Windows operating systems (XP or NT "Cp1252"). You can also enter other encryptions supported by the operating system.


Importing XSLT and Java Archives

  1. In design maintenance in the ES Builder, create a mapping object of type Imported Archive (see also: Creating an Object in the Integration Directory or Creating an Object in the PCK).

  2. Import the archive by choosing Import Archive . Once you have activated the archive other users can export it again.

  3. Save the archive.


You have saved the mapping programs in the Enterprise Services Repository. To be able to select these mapping programs for a scenario at configuration time, you must assign them to a pair of operations by using an operation mapping.


Operation mappings are not available in the PCK.
