EAI JSON Converter


Siebel does not provide any out of the box functionality to convert Siebel data into JSON string or vice versa. Developers end up with string manipulations or giving up on integration. I have created custom EAI JSON Converter business service which uses Java capabilities and Siebel-Java integration EAI Java Business Service to produce fully compliant JSON strings and convert the external JSON into Siebel Property Sets.

The service built on the lines of methods of EAI XML Converter which converts Property set to XML Doc and XML Doc to property set.
Methods available in EAI JSON Converter are:

  1. JSONToPropSet
  2. PropSetToJSON


Input data to this service is sent to EAIJSONConvert java class using Siebel API(Siebel.jar) which converts the data in required format using GSON 2.2.4 Java API . The Gson library was originally developed for internal purposes of Google, and Version 1.0 was later released on May 22, 2008 under the terms of Apache License 2.0. The latest version, 2.2.4, is used for the service.

How to set up:

1. Download and place java files in the CLASSES folder of Siebel Client the binaries 
Files:
EAIJsonConverter.class
gson-2.2.4.jar
Siebel.jar

2. Download the sif file for EAI JSON Converter from github
3. Update the cfg file to include gson-2.2.4.jar file. My cfg file look like:
[JAVA]
DLL = C:\Program Files\java\jre6\bin\client\jvm.dll
CLASSPATH = C:\Siebel\8.1\Tools_1\CLASSES\Siebel.jar;C:\Siebel\8.1\Tools_1\CLASSES\SiebelJI_enu.jar;C:\Siebel\8.1\Tools_1\CLASSES\gson-2.2.4.jar;C:\Siebel\8.1\Tools_1\CLASSES\.
VMOPTIONS = -Xrs -Djava.compiler=NONE -Djms.log=C:\logs\

4. Simulate the service

How to use:

Service can simply be used in place of EAI XML converter to convert the Siebel message into JSON or convert back JSON to property set.




Please feel free to use comments for any questions or to post any difficulty faced in using the service.

Hope it helps.

    1. 1.JSONToPropSet
      2.PropSetToJSON

      justvuse these methods and pass the json as value of property set. Look for twitter integration post on home page , it has script on how to use it.

      make sure u have java configured properly

      Seems like it is not able to find the class. Following are the exect steps that I have followed so far

      b) EAIJSONConverter.java
      c) gson-2.2.4.jar
      d) Siebel.jar


      2. Placed all the files in the following folder:
      C:\Siebel\8.1\Tools_1\CLASSES


      3. Created the exact above workflow and passed the "SiebelMessage" (which is an output of the EAI Siebel Adapter step) to the "EAI JSON Convert" step. I have a added the follwoing Method and Input Arguments to this step:

      MethodName: PropSetToJSON

      Input Argument: myJSON
      Type: Input/Output
      DataType: Hierarchy

    error is pointing to your default jre7, which is not compatible with Siebel. Please update you path to the jvm.dll to jvm 6 it is also provided by Siebel and exists in C:\siebel\8.1\Tools_1\jdk\jre

    hope it helps.

  5. First of all, well done. This sort of process would make a great addition to the base Siebel product.

    In looking at your Java code, the one issue I have is with the JSONtoPropSet method. If someone uses the business service in a workflow, the Input PropertySet passed will not contain a value (i.e Input.GetValue). Your code assumes they pass the json string in via the property value of the Input (ie propertyset.SetValue(json)). Whereas a workflow calling the method would pass the data as an argument using Inputs.SetProperty("JSON",json);

    To call your method form a workflow a person would have to build their own business service and then call your business service from theirs. Since you have provided the source I am able to change it to look an input property value of JSON, but thought I would provide you some feed back.

    Again, well done.

    1. Kenk thanks for reviewing the code.
      Passing value to the business through a workflow is very much possible. One can send values by passing it to the property of the business service. You must have seen it in EAI XML Converter.

      because of your comment I was actually able to find another issue regarding the passing back the property set, it is possible to get the child property set by accessing it through GetChild(0) however we need the "type" of the property set in case we need to use the workflow. However as a workaround I was able to get the child by trying to get the null type of property set.

      Will create a post for this. thanks again

    1. Sorry Geek to reply late. is it possible for you to share your json or some structure?

      there is no other paramter apart from the value, make sure that the value passed is a valid json.

    I have removed my previous comment, because it is resolved and did not provide much value here as well.

    Is the siebel.jar file modified? If so it might need a complete regression in the current app? Please let me know if my understanding is right. And if possible can you brief the change made?

    4. You seems to be having problem with your java setup. It is quite tricky to set it up correctly with siebel, as siebel does not support jre7. From the error I can see siebel is trying to initialize the jre7, which should not be the case.
      Additionally your classpath is incorrect, it should have a period(.) in the end for windows environments.


      please look at http://howtosiebel.blogspot.com.au/2013/11/EAI-Java-Business-Service.html for help.

  11. Hi Jim,

    I am trying to Convert JSON to Prop Set (Method-JSONToPropSet) using this business service,but the business service returns no output.I tested this by first converting a siebel message to json (Method- PropSetToJSON) and writing the output in a file(.xml format) then I read the same file using EAI File Transport whose output I converted to string using Transcode Business Service (Enconding to String,Source Encoding -UTF16/Des Encoding -UTF-8) this string I fed to the Property of JSON Converter,there is no output returned by this business service.

    1. The function works fine the only problem is the hierarchy of the output.This is because of the way it was coded. I initially coded it to suite my json structure, if you will look at the code more closely you will be able to find the reason.
      I recommend you to try it using script, and traverse the output property set of JSONToPropSet method. You will be able to find the output on 2 or 3 GetChild(0) depending on your json structure.

  13. Hello Rishi,

    You may fallow the below procedure if you are not able to import the BS.

    1) Hope you have downloaded the .Java file
    2) Generate .Class file using from command prompt or any Java editors (NetBeans ,eClips)
    3) Generate .jar file
    4) Place the files in Server ...\Tools\CLASSES
    5) Create Subsystem in Client application instead entry of Tool.cfg
    Make sure your .dll path should be proper.

    6) Login into Server Tools Create the BS instead import Mention the class name which you have generated at 2 step
    7) Add the BS User Property is @Class
    8) Simulate and Test from Client.

    2. Windows, yes.
      I resolved the problem by doing this:

      // output.addChild(JsonObjectToPropertySet(obj,op));
      // #JEN: modified for usage with Siebel Workflow
      JsonObjectToPropertySet(obj,op);
      op.setType("JsonPSOut");
      output.addChild(op);
      // #JEN: end

      So it's fine now.

  16. Hi Jim,

    Could you please detail the step to write the JSON to the file? I have configured the JSON process property as String, since the conversion service returns it as string. Somehow, I am not able to set the output in a process property. My logs show that the string has been converted to JSON. It would be great if you can provide the workflow .xml or the details of the step to call the converter and later to write it to a file.

    Many Thanks

    1. Shrikant, pass JSON string as input of the business service not as a process property.

    2. Shrikant, Have you solve the problem with NullPointerException? if yes, can you tell me how? I have the same problem. Thanks.

    3. Hi Mr Anonymous, The NullPointerExcpetion comes because you might have passed the JSON String as a Set Property to EAI JSON Converter, instead pass as Set Value and then in the .Java code will consume it using using GetValue.

      Note: The above is tested in BS Simulator in application.

      Firstly many thanks to the guy who posted it. Excellent post.

  19. Hi All, I have just published ver 2 of EAI JSON Converter here:
    http://howtosiebel.blogspot.com/2016/06/siebel-eai-json-converter-v2-no-java.html
    this version doesn't require Java Integration.

  20. Hi Jim,

    Can we capture a JSON response in the output argument of EAI HTTP Transport , SendReceive Method. (We are doing a GET here).
    I have tried this but the output argument is not able to capture the JSON response.
    What can be done regarding this.

    Regards,
    Joy

  21. HI JIm

    bad class file: Siebel - Copy.jar(com/siebel/data/SiebelPropertySet.class)
    class file has wrong version 50.0, should be 49.0 when we compile with C:\Siebel\8.1\Tools_1\jdk

  22. Hi Vijay, Java business service is not easy to set up. If you are facing difficulties please use escript alternative http://howtosiebel.blogspot.com/2016/06/download-eai-json-converter-v2.html
