How to Modify the Orders Configuration Files

Commerce Server 2007
For the latest version of Commerce Server 2007 Help, see the Microsoft Web site.

Four configuration files affect the behavior of the Orders System:

  • Web.config. Defines how to map addresses in the Profiles System to the Orders System, determines whether any new classes that you created replace core orders classes, and identifies limits on how many objects can be created for each user.

  • OrderObjectMappings.xml. Defines how objects in the Orders runtime map to tables and columns in the database.

  • OrderPipelineMappings.xml. Defines how objects in the Orders runtime map to entries in the dictionaries that pipelines use.

  • LanguageCode _OrdersPresentationInfo.xml. Determines the names to display in the Customer and Orders Manager for Orders classes and their properties.

When you create a new class that is used by the Orders System, you must modify the configuration files. If you add a new weakly typed indexer property to a core Orders class, you might also have to modify the configuration files. The following table lists the Orders configuration files and the situations in which you might have to modify each file.
