Pinned topic White paper on using the MDM Workbench

‏2009-05-27T14:14:42Z | mdm-migration
Hi,

I've attached a White paper on how to extend MDM Server functionality using the MDM Workbench. Any feedback would be much appreciated

Regards

Tony Garrard


Update: A new version of the white paper is now available for version 9. Both versions are available using the following links:

    Hi,

    I am working on MDM8.0, and currently working on BusinessAdmin UI. We have customized code tables in the project.
    We extended the CodeTables framework and customized the code tables by creating the EObj, CodeTableProperties, CodeTableRSProcessor.
    Now, we need to bring those customzed code tables into Business Admin UI.
    Can you please tell me the steps to follow in bringing the customized code tables onto the BusinessAdmin UI.

    Thanks
    Ram

    Hi Ram,

    Are you talking about the DataStewardship UI that is shipped as sample code ? If so there is a section on adding code tables in the MDMDataStewardshipUIDevelopersGuide pdf ? Or are you asking how to retrieve/set data from these tables ?

    Regards

    Tony

    Hi Tony,

    Thanks for the reply. The MDMDataStewardshipUIDevelopersGuide pdf is related to the master data transaction tables like Party, Org etc.
    I am looking something related to admin part like managing the code tables, security, metadata etc. I did the following things till now

    1. I installedthe MDMBusinessAdmin.ear file from admin consloe and did the server settings and am able to view the Out of the Box (OOTB) code tables and other admin tables.

    2. But, my project requirement is to have additional code tables apart from the OOTB.

    3. I created these additional code tables by extending the CodeTables Framework of MDM8.0. Where in I created the classes which I mentioned in my previous mail.

    4. Now my requirement is to configure the Business Admin UI to show these newly created code table additions into the business admin UI. So that Business Admin
    of the client company can manage these newly created code tables.

    5. I need the steps in adding these code tables into the business admin UI.

    It will be a great help if you have the steps in executing the step5 above.

    Thanks
    Ram

    Hi Ram,

    According to the pdf I mentioned (page 19, though I am looking at MDM 8.5), you can add extra codetables by modifying the class com.ibm.mdm.ui.data.CodeTablesData (seems to be an error in the docs as its mentioning a different package). This class is packaged in the MDMBusinessAdmin.ear (inside CommonUIModel.jar). So you should be able to import the ear into your workspace (you might need to check the CommonUIModel.jar so that its imported as a project). You could then copy the source from the samples into this project and make the required modifications. I haven't tried this, but if you have any more questions/issues you may want to post a new question in this forum so that someone with more experience on this can reply.

    Regards

    Tony

    It looks good, but it could be really helpful if you would add guidelines for defining new MDM composite services.

    Hi Anand,

    I'd recommend joining the MDM Developers group to have a look at some of the resources available to the MDM community. Is there any area you're particularly interested in? Are you looking for an overview of MDM, or details on specific products, and any preferences for courses, books, tutorials, articles, documentation etc.?
