You use drag and drop to do the following:
● Open objects
You can call the object editor for this object by dragging the object from the navigation area to the work area. To do this, drag the object to the edge of the work area. When this edge is selected and turns black, drop the object.
This is supported within the Enterprise Services Repository and the Integration Directory.
● Create object references
The object editors of some object types contain drag and drop targets. These drop targets are indicated by the hand icon (). If you open object O1 in change mode and drag an object O2 from the navigation area to the hand icon () with the mouse button pressed, then object O2 is entered in this location in the object editor of object O1. This creates an object reference from object O1 to object O2.
Drag and drop is also supported between the Enterprise Services Repository and the Integration Directory.
You can use drag and drop to drag an interface object from the navigation area of the Enterprise Services Repository to the hand icon in the Inbound Interface column in the Edit Interface Determination editor in the Integration Directory. An object reference from the interface determination to an interface object is then created.
