This article is a follow on to the “Oracle SOA Suite 11g HL7 Inbound Example – Functional ACK Addendum” article and the “Oracle SOA Suite 11g HL7 Inbound – Customized HL7 Message Structure and Data Validation” article. In these articles the B2B infrastructure was configured to return the “Functional ACK” when it validated each message. The ACK was a positive or a negative ACK depending on whether the message passed validation. The ACK was generated by the B2B Layer before the message was passed on to the SOA Layer.
In this article I expand on the previous posts by configuring the B2B Layer to pass the message to the SOA Layer and pass the Functional ACK, generated by the SOA Layer on to the requester. To process a message and produce the ACK we will build and deploy a new SOA Composite.
