A child Virtual Business Component (VBC) had been created based on class CSSFABCVRec class, per details in :-
When the VBC is invoked the first time, it is working as expected, and the details returned from VBC are displayed ok. But when the VBC is invoked the second time (e.g. navigating to next parent record), it raises an error :-
Error invoking service 'EAI XML Converter', method 'IntObjHierToXMLDoc' at step 'Convert IO to XML'.(SBL-BPR-00162)
The XML hierarchy cannot be converted to an XML document.(SBL-EAI-04112)
Input Property Set should have a child of type 'XMLHierarchy'(SBL-EAI-00250)
On third call, the VBC works again (i.e. it works on alternate calls).
Using the test case provided with document 477671.1, when the Workflow 'Get Temperature Web Service' is first invoked via the 'SIA Billing Extern Service', the SiebelMessage is populated ok :-
