Enable user exits for the Connect Direct Server Adapter
The Connect Direct Server Adapter in B2B Integrator supports the Connect Direct transmissions protocol but does not support other Connect Direct features which are of value to our customers. If the CDSA could function more closely to a Connect:Dirext Unix server, that would remove many of the issues. This may be satisfactorily addressed by adding user exits to the adapter to enable the capture of all of the process and metadata provided in a Connect:Direct process script. Also, if exits equivalent to those in Connect:Direct UNIX were supported, this would enable equal functionality.
What is your industry?
How will this idea be used?
A client sends a process to the CDSA with metadata in the SACCT and PACCT fields which need to be passed downstream for correct processing. CDSA does not currently support these fields and actually discards most of the process level information.
