Functional Framework

The Sterling B2B Integrator framework uses a Business Process engine as its core transaction engine to support all data management, translation, transformation, and routing services.

This framework supports:
  • Advanced parsing, filtering, and content-based routing through the use of XPath parsing and filtering technology
  • A base set of services that you can use and extend as your requirements evolve and new technologies emerge (custom services can also be developed to support the unique requirements of your organization)
Other Sterling B2B Integrator foundation functions that complement the business engine are:
  • An administration layer that is a single point of access for configuring, monitoring, and managing the system and its integration activities
  • Tracking services that trace the flow of information even as a business process runs
  • Monitoring, which enables you to view business processes as they run
  • Logging, which records system events such as user interaction, administration, and the execution of business processes
  • Event notifications that provide alerts in response to events or exceptions, using mechanisms such as e-mail or pagers
  • Archival storage of business process data
