Add schema-based PIP

Use this procedure to use a schema-based PIP not already supported by Activator.

Activator supports a number of schema-based PIPs. The PIP schemas are in < install directory>\conf\rosettanet\schemas.

  1. Obtain the correct version of the PIP package from RosettaNet at www.rosettanet.org .
  2. A PIP package is a zip file containing a readme file, an XML folder with the machine-readable PIP standard and a descriptive folder with the human-readable form of the PIP standard. The XML folder has schemas defining the structure and allowable content of the messages involved in the PIP.
  3. Unzip the PIP zip file. Copy the resulting directory to <install directory>\conf\rosettanet\schemas.
  4. Define the PIP in the pipdefinitions.xml file. See Configure pipdefinitions.xml file.
  5. When you upgrade later to a newer version of Activator, you must copy the PIP directory to the schemas directory of the new application. You also must change the pipdefinitions.xml file for the new application.
