  • Application Overview
    QXO is a component of the QAD QXtend interoperability framework. This framework provides a standardized data interface between QAD products, and between QAD products and external systems. The framework consists of:
    QXO, which exports user-configurable business objects as XML QDocs out of QAD products such as QAD Enterprise Applications to external subscribers. QXO is described in this section of this reference guide.
    QAD QXtend Inbound (QXI), which imports SOAP-compliant XML QDocs from external applications into QAD Enterprise Applications and other QAD applications. For details see QAD QXtend Inbound.
    This interoperability framework replaces QAD products and solutions including CIM, Q/LinQ, and Data Synchronization. See Glossary for definitions of terms and abbreviations.
    QXO exports business objects from QAD Enterprise Applications versions eB and above. This user guide describes the implementation of QXO for QAD Enterprise Applications. Details about using and implementing QXO with other QAD applications can be found in the guides for those applications.
    Because QXI and QXO have different data requirements, inbound and outbound QDocs are not always equivalent. Inbound QDocs provide input to QAD Enterprise Applications in the same way a user would. The data is input field-by-field through the user interface, but the input is automated. Therefore, inbound QDocs require a rigid data sequence and are limited to a single entry program, such as Sales Order Maintenance.
    Outbound QDocs usually include data from multiple QAD Enterprise Applications tables, and possibly from multiple screens, in order to provide external subscribers with a comprehensive business object.
    Note: Data originating from the Financials module in QAD EE—due to the module’s underlying system architecture—is provided to QXO as a raw business object. As such there is no need to extract data for these business objects from the QAD Financials database.
