Processing Flat Files using EDI for TN

Does anyone have any experience in this area ? I know that a Java service can be written to parse structured data files, and incorporate the file into a record. However, I am not a Java programmer and would like to find a method within the system.

My goal is to FTP the flat files to the webMethods server, have the server parse the files and using Trading Networks, distribute the documents based upon content of the file.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.

You need to create a template for your flat file.
Take a look at the wmEDI adapter documentation. There’s lots of good info in there.
Also see the wmEDISamples package where there’s a few good examples. You do not need to write any Java services to accomplish this.

Like mentioned above, you need to create a template that describes the incoming data.
