This chapter discusses the additional steps needed to add ASTM routing interfaces to a production. It includes the following topics:

Be sure to perform these tasks in the same namespace that contains your production. When you create rule sets, transformations, and search tables, do not use reserved package names; see Reserved Package Names in Developing Ensemble Productions.
Loading ASTM Schemas into Ensemble
To load an ASTM schema into Ensemble, use the ASTM Schema Structures page, described in the chapter Available Tools.”
For information on creating custom schema categories, see Creating Custom Schema Categories in Ensemble Virtual Documents.
Defining Routing Rule Sets for ASTM
Depending on the business process that you create, you may need to create a routing rule set.
For general information on defining business rules, see Developing Business Rules.
When you create a routing rule set for an ASTM routing interface:
Defining DTL Data Transformations for ASTM
Your routing rules might need one or more data transformations.
For general information on defining DTL data transformations, see Developing DTL Transformations.
When you create a DTL data transformation for ASTM documents:
Use the ASTM Document Viewer Page to test your transformations, as described in the chapter Available Tools.”
To integrate the DTL data transformation in the production, enter its full package and class name in the Transform field of a routing rule set.
Defining ASTM Search Tables
The ASTM search table class, EnsLib.EDI.ASTM.SearchTable, automatically indexes the ASTM document ID, which it gives the name Identifier.
If you need more items to search, you can create a subclass. The subclass inherits the Identifier property, plus the infrastructure that makes search tables work. For details, see Defining a Search Table Class in Ensemble Virtual Documents.
For ASTM, Ensemble supports an additional value for PropType. You can use DateTime:HL7 in addition to the types listed in Ensemble Virtual Documents.
