Closed as documentation error.
The INformation regarding Packaging in the infoCenter is incorrect and needs to be updated during next publishing cycle. Customer Recreate/ Steps to Duplicate: n/a Desired Behavior: Correct Documentation ENVIRONMENT: TDI 7.0, 7.1, 7.1.1 SOLUTION: DOC apar Business Impact: n/a Next Client Communication: n/a Updates: 1. In this statement, Packing should be Packaging Appendix E. Creating new components using Adapters in the Reference Guide, Packing an Adapter for consumption 2. In the below paragraphs: ** Replace Adapter section of the resources library with Connectors section of th resources library. ** The location is the <install-directory>\packages, not anywhere. ** The "At this stage" creates more confusion. More explantation is needed for the Other Packages might .... The package can be saved anywhere, but the default location is the packages directory in Anne's Tivoli Directory Integrator solution directory. When the Adapter is published, it shows up in the Adapter section of the resources library, in the connector list as an available connector, and can also be queried from the AL Connector (see section Using an Adapter in your AssemblyLine). At this stage you might be a bit confused about the difference between a Package and an Adapter. Basically, Adapters are Packages that are intended to be used as Connectors. Other Packages might just contain ALs that can be called with the AL FC or other mechanism to run an AL.
The documentation would be updated in the TDI.next releae.
The udpated documentation would read as follows. Publishing an adapter for consumption. The goal, in the scenario depicted in the introduction, would be to help Anne package her Adapter component and publish it for others to consume. When the Adapter has been developed, the Publish command in the Tivoli Directory Integrator development environment creates a Package of Anne's AL. Publishing an AL means resolving all inheritance and dependencies between the Adapter AL and the rest of Anne's development environment. The Package consists of a standard stand-alone config XML file that only contains the Adapter code that can be sent to other TDI developers for inclusion in their resource library (more below). The package can be saved in the Packages directory of the Install directory of Tivoli Directory Integrator. When the Adapter is published, it shows up in the connector list as an available connector, and can also be queried from the AL Connector (see section ?Using an Adapter in your AssemblyLine?).
