  • Adding a Schema to the Master Lists
    Schemas are the QDoc schemas and events files generated using QGen.
    For information on QGen, see QGen.
    QAD ships standard QDoc APIs. Additional standard QDocs may be made available on the QAD Web site at:
    You can add schemas using either the 1.1 or 1.0 QDoc syntax. You specify a request type or response type for the schema only if using the 1.0 syntax specification.
    You also can generate schemas and events files for customized or custom Progress programs.
    When you add the schemas through the Configuration Manager, new standard QAD schemas are added to:
    TOMCAT_HOME/webapps/<QXI webapp>/
    WEB-INF/schemas/<mfgpro-version>/
    Custom schemas are added to:
    TOMCAT_HOME/webapps/<QXI webapp>/
    WEB-INF/schemas/<mfgpro-version>/custom
    When adding new QDocs, you can select which receivers to add them to, and the new QDocs are available to be added to any new receiver you create in the future.
    You can add or modify QDocs, or overwrite existing QDocs. You can also delete custom QDocs.
    1
    To add a schema, choose Schemas|<mfgpro-version>. The master list of all available standard and custom schemas displays.
    2
    Click Add and then select the appropriate Suspend option if QXI is active. The Add Schema screen displays.

    Adding a Schema
    3
    Enter the following information:
    XML Syntax
    Specify the XML syntax version to use for the schema.
    Route
    Indicate the name of the adapter for this QDoc—UI API or service interface API.
    Request Path
    Specify the full path to the base request schema that is to be uploaded to the standard or custom schema directory in Tomcat; for example:
    downloads/shipSalesOrder-eB_1.xsd
    Request Type Path
    (QDoc 1.0 syntax only). Specify the full path to the request type schema, typically the same path as for the base schema; for example:
    downloads/shipSalesOrderType-eB_1.xsd
    Response Path
    Optional. This path and file name are required only when you want to specify a response schema. Enter the path to the response schema that is to be uploaded to the standard or custom schema directory in Tomcat; for example:
    downloads/shipSalesOrderResponse-eB_1.xsd
    Response Type Path
    (QDoc 1.0 syntax only). Optional. This path and file name are required only when you want to specify a response type schema. Enter the path to the base response type schema that is to be uploaded to the standard or custom schema directory in Tomcat; for example:
    downloads/shipSalesOrderResponseType-eB_1.xsd
    Events Path
    Specify the full path and file name of the events file. This is the location where the events for the schema are saved, usually with the same name as the QAD Enterprise Applications source procedure, but with an .xml extension. The default path is:
    TOMCAT_HOME /webapps/<QXI webapp>/
    WEB-INF/events/mfgpro_version
    To use a different version of the events file, specify the path to it here; for example:
    TOMCAT_HOME /webapps/<QXI webapp>/
    WEB-INF/events/eb2/downloads/sosois-eB2_1.xml
    Procedure
    Specify the target procedure name in QAD Enterprise Applications, such as customProgram.p or sosois.p.
    Choose the Custom radio button to install a custom QDoc, or the Standard button to install a standard QDoc.
    4
    Choose Next. If the QDoc already exists, you are given the option to overwrite the existing QDoc. If you overwrite, you continue and the Add Receiver Support page displays. If you do not overwrite, you are returned to step 2 and must re-enter the information.

    Adding a Schema to Existing Receivers
    5
    If you want to add the new schema to receivers, select the receivers you want to add the new schema to and choose Done. A confirmation message displays.
    6
    If you suspended QXI services in step 2, you are given the option to resume. If you do so, QXI services resume and a confirmation message displays.

    Confirming a Schema Addition
    7
    To exit the add schema or the resume QXI services confirmation screens, choose any other menu option in the QXtend Manager interface.
