Configuring mailbox user exits

In Sterling B2B Integrator 5,2.5 or higher, you can configure mailbox user exits.

Perform the following tasks to configure user exit points for a mailbox service. The interfaces are provided through separate files present in the install_dir/install/userexit/jars (install_dir\install\userexit\jars for Windows) directory.

For more information on specific Mailbox services and their java method implementation details, see the Javadocs provided in the install_dir/userexit/docs directory.

  1. Write the code to implement the interface for the specific point.
  2. Add the custom code classes to a .jar file.
  3. Add the path of the .jar file to the dynamicclasspath.cfg file in the install_dir/install/properties (install_dir\install\properties for Windows) directory.
  4. Restart Sterling B2B Integrator.
  5. Open the install_dir/properties/userexit (install_dir\properties\userexit for Windows) directory and locate MailboxUserExits.xml file.
  6. Edit the MailboxUserExits.xml file and add an entry for each implementation as shown. The user exits are run in the same order as they appear.
    <bean id="" class="com.sterlingcommerce.woodstock.userexit.srvices.mailbox.MailboxUserExit">
      		   <property name="implementations">
  7. Remove all values to deactivate the user exit points.
    The implementation "" should not be removed before first reviewing APAR IC91071.
  8. Restart the mailbox service to apply the changes.
