Beginning in Pega Platform 8.6, EAR deployments of Pega Platform are deprecated. In the upcoming 8.7 release, EAR deployments will
not be supported. As a result, in Pega Platform 8.7, Connect EJB rules
will also no longer be supported. For more information on the alternatives for EAR-related
rules, see Deprecation of EAR deployments in Pega Platform 8.6.

If you map from XML Stream, enter the Stream Name key
part of the XML Stream rule that is to assemble the outgoing XML document. To
find the rule at runtime, the system uses the Applies To class of this Connect
EJB rule as the class of the XML rule, and the literal constant
MapFrom as the final key part. Enter only the Stream Name key
If you map from HTML Stream, enter the Stream Name key
part of the HTML rule that is to generate the data stream. To find the rule at
runtime, the system uses the Applies To key part of this Connect EJB rule as the
Applies To key part of the HTML rule.
