Pinned topic dp:url-open vs dp:xset-target

‏2013-03-11T22:11:58Z |
I need to push a message to an MQ Gateway and will not receive any response from the MQ. We can use dp:url-open push the message, where it will act as a side-call or I can use dp:xset-target to use Datapower backside-call functionality. Both are implemented and tested and they are working properly. Which one should I use and why? What are the pros and cons of each?

    My general rule of thumb is to do things in the processing actions rather than in code. Either one works, but I think that it's easier for the next developer to understand what's going on if it's obvious in the processing rule rather than buried in code.
