Integration Object chaining

Integration Object chaining enables you to create multiple Integration Objects which can be grouped together into a single major task within your Z and I Emulator for Transformation application. Each Integration Object performs one subtask, and the major task is performed by an Integration Object chain. When the application is run, the Integration Objects run in sequence, each using the same connection.

When you right click on the macro to create the Integration Object, select Create Chained Integration Object. Then specify whether the Integration Object is the first, middle, or last in the chain. There can be more than one middle Integration Object in a chain. Enter the labels that identify the start and stop states for this Integration Object. There is no start state label for an Integration Object that is first in its chain, and no stop state label for an Integration Object that is last in its chain. State labels are required to ensure that the Integration Objects in a chain are processed in the correct order, with the correct data passed each time.

This section describes Integration Object chaining in detail and shows you how to use it in your ZIETrans applications.
