• Create the definition of the system that you want to parse. For more information on how to create a definition, refer to Exercises C,D, and E

• The message definition defines the structure and separators of the messaging system and is the information that the Engines need to create valid messages. These messages will all have the *.s3d format and the tool is not designed to create *.xsd schemas.

• You will need to have a definition associated with every route where you want to make changes to the message. Without a definition, Rhapsody will not know the structure of the message and therefore cannot edit it.

• You can access the EDI Message Designer:

- The Start menu
