Testing the message structure (Validate node)
Use the Validate node to test the characteristics of the message structure.
About this task
If you set the Validate node properties appropriately, you can request that one or all of the message domain, message set, and message type are compared to a specific value. If the message matches those values for which you have requested the check, it is routed through the match terminal and is processed by the sequence of nodes that you have connected to that terminal.
If the message does not match any one of those values for which you have requested the check, it is routed through the failure terminal and is processed by the sequence of nodes that you have connected to that terminal.
For example, you might design a message flow that provides additional processing for all messages that are in the MRM domain. You can include a Validate node that tests just that characteristic of the message, and passes it to a sequence of nodes that provide the specialized processing. If the message is not in the MRM domain, the extra nodes are bypassed, and the failure terminal is wired up directly to the node that follows the sequence required for MRM messages only.
