I was going thru. the documentation for webMethods 6.0 upgrade and I found the following:
"webMethods integration platform 6.0 uses flat file schemas instead of templates to convert and validate EDI documents. As part of the process of upgrading to EDI Module 6.0, therefore, you must do the following:
· For EDI transactions, create flat file schemas from original SEFs or IDOCs.
· For non-EDI documents, convert your existing 4.x templates to flat file schemas."
From this I understand that for 6.0 EDI implementation we need to have flat file schemas and we can’t use templates for implementation.
But what happens to the code which has already been written and use template object for validation etc?
Does this mean that we have to go back to the code and make the necessary changes too? Are there any changes in the services under EDI packages like getTemplate etc?
Any information about this and any other issues related to EDI implemetation migration from 4.0 to 6.0 is greatly appreciated.
