Applies to:

Oracle Application Server Integration B2B - Version: 11.1.1.0.0 - Release: FMw 11g
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal


You want to use SOA Suite 11g for processing EDI transactions.

What is the best practice for creating mappings in Mediator?

Should they create specific maps for each customer and document type?

Or should they create one map for one document type irrespective of customer?

For example:

If you have outgoing 856 document for 80 customers, do they need to create 80 customer specific mapping in ESB? Or can you simply create one common 856 mapping in ESB. If you create one commom map, then how will B2B know to which trading partner a particular document belongs?
