How the B2B Request-Response Service Works

The B2B Request-Response service starts the B2B Lookup service to start the appropriate communications adapter.

When a business process includes the B2B Request-Response service:

  1. The service runs as part of the business process.
  2. The B2B Request-Response service starts the B2B Lookup service.
  3. The B2B Lookup service locates:
    • The production profile of the contract
    • The transport protocol of the production profile
    • The appropriate transport business process for the profile's transport protocol, or the business process associated with the Request-Response message mode in the production profile, if specified
  4. The B2B Lookup service either runs the default business process if none was specified in the profile, or runs the business process specified in the production profile for Request-Response message mode.
  5. The B2B Lookup service starts the appropriate communications adapter.
  6. The communications adapter sends a message to the transport server of the production profile.
