A point of sale (POS) system is connected to a central application server at the enterprise level. Networkis unavailable and the POS system is not able to connect, but stores still need to service customers. The store would like to operate in offline mode and transfer data to the server once the network is back.
How can an implementation professional model this requirement in the system?
A. Run the Change data import agent for data synch from enterprise to store in DELTA synch mode
B. Run the Change data export agent for data synch from enterprise to store in DELTA synch mode
C. Run the Change data import agent for data synch from enterprise to store in FULL synch mode
D. Run the Change data export agent for data synch from enterprise to store in QUICK synch mode
Application server data source connection pooling needs tobe enabled for an IBM Sterling Order Management V9.4 application deployed on Oracle WebLogic Application Server 12c and Oracle Database 11g (126.96.36.199).
Which configuration will enable data source connection pooling?
A. Add “jdbcService oraclePool datasource=<datasourceName>1′ in $INSTALL_DIR/properties/customer_overrides properties and Update JVM argument to “-
B. Add “jdbcService.oraclePool.datasource=<datasourceName>” in $INSTALL_DIR/properties/jdbc.properties and Update JVM argument to “-Dvendor=weblogic12”
C. Add “jdbcService.oraclePool.datasource=<datasourceName>” in $INSTALL_DIR/properties/jdbc.properties and Update JVM argument to “-Dvendor=weblogic”
D. Add “jdbcService.oraclePool.datasource=<datasourceName>” in $INSTALL_DIR/properties/customer_overrides.properties and Update JVM argument to “-Dvendor=weblogic12”
In a development environment with an IBM Sterling Order Management system (OMS), IBM WebSphereMQ crashed. All queues have been restarted and all messages were deleted.
Based on this situation, which statement is true’?
A. OMS will reprocess all messages, including the messages from agent servers and integration servers; no further action is required
B. OMS will only reprocess all messages related to integration servers
C. OMS will only reprocess messages related to schedule and release agent servers.
D. OMS will reprocess all messages, including the messages from agent servers and integration servers once the external systems refill the queues with lost messages
II was found during an implementation that the input to a particular API component in a service did not contain the sales order document type in the input.

B. Add an XSL Translator component before the API componentto stamp the DocumentType attribute.
C. Add a Defaulting component before the API component to stamp the DocumentType attribute.
D. Add the sales order document type to the template of the API component.
