Using the Enhanced EERP (End-to-End-Response) Functionality
The OFTP protocol uses the EERP functionality to inform the sender of a file that the file has reached the receiving OFTP partner station. By default, the rvsEVO partner station immediately generates this EERP acknowledgment. Optionally for enhanced EERP functionality, the acknowledgment is not sent until release is done within a release command of the receiving application.
*To use the extended EERP functionality
1. Call the services wm.oftp.gateway.Gw:fetchAndUpdateStatus to fetch the files sent by the partner OFTP station to your OFTP server and the service to retrieve the messages from the Inbound folder to Trading Networks.
For a detailed description of these services, see Receiving of OFTP Messages.
For information on using the enhanced EERP functionality in the rvsEVO Administrator GUI, see the rvsEVO documentation on T-Systems rvs website.
2. Define a processing rule within Trading Networks to submit the information on received inbound messages to the rvsEVO system. The rvsEVO application then has to return a status to Trading Networks.
3. Create the Trading Networks document oftpStatusOut with identifier positiveEERPout if the status is positive or, negativeEERPout if the status is negative.
For more information, see Structure of Messages.
The rvsJobID must have the same value as available within the original inbound message. Additionally, the documentID must correspond to the Trading Networks internal ID (doc-ID) of the inbound message.
4. If the notification status is positive, you have to call the service to release the hold EERP notification for this job. In case of a negative notification, you have to call the service to delete the related EERP hold job.
The service wm.oftp.gateway.outbound:send is invoked for sending the notification to the OFTP partner station.
