FNT CIF Adapter Development

FNT CIF Adapter Development

Prerequisites:
- CIF Configuration Training
- FNT Command Administrator
- FNT Command API
- FNT Command Customization & Reporting
- Java Development skills
- Eclipse IDE skills recommended

The Command Integration Framework (CIF) is a toolset for network inventory reconciliation. CIF assures FNT Command data quality by detecting and resolving discrepancies and keeping network device and topology information up to date. Also, it provides the possibility to create network inventory reconciliation interfaces using a predefined set of functions and features aiming to reduce the interface implementation time to a minimum.
The Command Integration Framework adapter development course gives participants the knowledge to extend the frameworks capabilities to create customer-specific network inventory reconciliation interfaces by implementing pluggable java adapters. In the context of the framework a plugin adapter is mainly responsible for extracting data from nearly each kind of data sources and pushing the extracted data into the framework’s Cache. All other tasks belonging to a reconciliation interface like discrepancy calculation, synchronization and monitoring are provided by the frameworks out-of-the-box functionality and will be touched in the training by embedding plugin adapters in the workflow of a reconciliation interface.
Beside the implementation of plugin adapters, the course participants will be trained using the Business Gateway Entities REST API in a java plugin adapter context to realize different use cases like importing data from external systems into the Cache or using of mapping lists for filtering of data.
After the theoretical introduction in the plugin adapter development containing also best practices from FNT’s wide ranged experience in the realization of reconciliation interfaces the knowledge of the participants will be solified with practical samples and exercises.

Content overview:
- Usage of frameworks plugin library to develop plugin adapters.
- Usage of the Command REST API in the context of plugin adapters.
- Packaging and installation of plugin adapters in FNT Command.
- Execution of plugin adapters by the usage of the frameworks job management.
- Embedding plugin adapters in the workflow of reconciliation interfaces by controlling and monitoring specific steps like plugin adapter execution for data loading, delta calculation, and synchronization.
- Best practice java architecture for plugin adapters.
