This is a pretty simple blog, addressing a very frequently asked question on XI forum as to how to remove the namespaces from the XML output of Message Mapping. This issue has been answered on the XI forums as well, and i am putting it graphically as a weblog, for the benefit of newbies in XI. While creating the Message Type in the Integration Repository, you can find a field called XML Namespace, this field will be holding the namespace value, as shown in the image below. If we do not remove the namespace from there, then the xml output will also contain the namespace in the root element, as shown in the image below. Inorder to get rid of the namespace from the XML output, we need to delete the value from XML Namespace, while creating the message type. Now the XML output will look like below, The output in SXMB_MONI as well, Hope this blog was helpful.
