Overview of Connections and Actions

The Importer Wizard uses SAP R/3 structure-specific metadata input to generate schemas containing the corresponding type definitions. The Importer Wizard uses a series of maps to convert metadata into a schemascript file. The Type Tree Maker then processes this schema script and generates a schema containing all the supported types defined in the metadata that is imported.

For example, the following illustration shows several RSEIDOC3 IDoc definition files being imported into the Importer Wizard, which automatically generates the corresponding schema.

Schemas generated by the Importer Wizard can be used immediately for map development. Depending on the contents of the interface-specific metadata file, it may be necessary for the generated schema to be modified using the Design Server. See each interface-specific section for information about the generated schemas.
