The eiConsole for OpenTravel Getting Started Tutorial introduces the user to travel-specific features and components that make configuring travel & hospitality interfaces dramatically easier and faster. It is suggested that new users complete the eiConsole Quick Start Tutorial and General Getting Started Tutorial to learn eiConsole basics, before beginning this tutorial.
The eiConsole is an integrated development environment (IDE) for developers and technical BAs alike, that offers an intuitive paint-by-numbers approach. In addition to the core product features of the eiConsole, the eiConsole for OpenTravel has been engineered expressly for developing OpenTravel-compliant XML messaging solutions. It offers a unique blend of OpenTravel XML specific features, a flexible component driven architecture and unparalleled ease of use. It allows implementers of travel XML standards to choose from a pre-developed library of interface templates. These templates provide schemas (XSDs) and example OpenTravel XML messages for every defined request and response type.
