  • Custom QDocs
    You can create QDoc XML schema and events documents for programs you have created or customized using a tool called QGen that ships with QXI. QGen creates schema files for request and response documents, as well as an events file. See QGen.
    To create the supporting files, you launch an QAD Enterprise Applications QGen session and run the calling program you want to create QDocs for. When it is running, you start the QGen mapping functionality. You then navigate through each field in the program. For each field, a pop-up dialog displays, letting you enter schema and events information for the field. When you have completed the mapping for the program, you save the QGen map and turn off the mapper.
    From the same calling program, you then open the QGen menu and load the mapping data. You then enter the QDoc name—for example, maintainCustomData—select the schema standard to use, and generate the documents.
    To create QDocs for customized QAD Enterprise Applications programs, you simply reload the existing mapping program for the original calling program. You can then resave it under a new name—sosomt.p to xxsosomt.p—and then map the new or modified fields in the program.
