Error description

  • 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

    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.

Problem summary

  • The documentation would be updated in the TDI.next releae.
    

Problem conclusion

  • 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?).
