Outbound Processing Overview

The standard outbound process converts an XML document to an EDIFACT-formatted document.

The input document that is sent to the channel may not be in XML format. It can be any input document that first will be processed by the channel and transformed to an EDIFACT document.

In a basic message flow, outbound processing consists of the following components and steps. For an illustration of the components available in the construction of a message flow, see Using a Channel to Construct a Message Flow. You will define the components in the configuration instructions in Sample Configuration for Outbound Processing: XML to EDIFACT.
