Does anyone have any information on the J.D. Edwards XPI tool?
The JDE XPI (eXtended Process Integration) tool is based upon a combination of webMethods/Active Enterprise integration and the Netfish (now IONA) XDI Suite (now B2B Integrator). JDEdwards evaluated various vendors and selected webMethods/Active for EAI functionality and Netfish (now IONA) for B2B functionality.
JDE has added some things to it such as XBP (eXtended Business Processes) and canonicals (data structures for invoices, POs, etc.) along with the JDE adaptor. XBPs are packaged integrations for performing various JDE business functions such as creating an Order in JDE. The XBPs make use of the canonicals. If you want the XBPs, canonicals, and JDE adaptor you have to negotiate with JDE.
