Fig3. Output CSV Message


       XI sends a XML message as input to the receiver adapter.Now this XML needs to be converted to a File in CSV format, i.e. it may be a comma separated, tab separated etc. To generate the required output, the data type at the receiver’s side plays a crucial rule. The data type should abide to the rules of well formed XML.

The Receiver File Adapter is configured, using the following settings:

  • Choose File Content Conversion as the Message Protocol.
  • You may or may not give the ‘addHeaderLine’ parameter.
  • For the ‘fieldSeparator’ parameter you need to give field separator for both list and substructure (referring to the data type above). For eg: it may be a ‘,’ (comma) for substructure in a comma separated file.
  • The ‘endSeparator’ parameter needs to given for substructure only. For eg: it may be a ‘nl’ (new line)
