In this part of tutorial we will see how to customize the message going out of MIF to an external system using XSL stylesheets.
To communicate with an external system MIF provides Publish Channels:
A publish channel is the pipeline for sending data asynchronously from the system to an external system. Events that initiate publish channel processing are object events (insert, update, and delete), application initiated calls, and data export.
Basically its used by MIF to dump data out. Now once it’s out it’s the prerogative of the external system how to use it. That external system may expect the data in a certain format and here we will see how to use XSL Maps in
MIF to make sure our message going out conforms (if not completely) to the format.
