<ReservationParameters AllowMultipleReservations="" ReservationID="AB3" ExpirationDate="2013-04-16T10:42:00" />
<PromiseLine ItemID="Item_Cap1" LineId="1" RequiredQty="1" FulfillmentType="PRODUCT_SOURCING" ShipNode="N4" UnitOfMeasure="EACH" >
<ReservationParameters ReservationID="AB4"/>

2. Create order for the reservation

<Order DocumentType="0001" EnterpriseCode="DEFAULT" DraftOrderFlag="N" ReserveInventoryFlag="Y">
<OrderLine PrimeLineNo="1" SubLineNo="1" ShipNode="N4" OrderedQty="1" ReservationMandatory="Y">
<Item ItemID="Item_Cap1" UnitOfMeasure="EACH"/>
<OrderLineReservation ItemID="Item_Cap1" Node="N4" Quantity="1" ReservationID="AB3" UnitOfMeasure="EACH" />
<PersonInfoShipTo Country="US"/>
