Extracting from Message Format Service (MFS)

To extract interface definitions from Message Format Service (MFS) with MID and MOD definitions, use a command-line extractor. Run the extractor with the following command:

java -classpath <suite installation folder>\IntegrationServer\packages\WmEntireX\code\jars\entirex.jar com.softwareag.entirex.ims.extractor.MFSExtractor <inputfile>

The input file must be an MFS source with MID and MOD definitions. The output is an IDL file with the same name as the input file and suffix ".idl". Use the IDL file to generate connections and adapter services with the Integration Server Wrapper.
