Request Handlers

A request handler object defines a request handler. A request handler is a program that receives a client request for access to the service, and translates the request into a form that the application providing the business functionality can understand. After the application has completed its task, the request handler translates the output from the application into a form that the client can understand, then passes the output to the client, via the communications process.

We provide request handlers for the SOAP protocol and for the Micro Focus binary protocol. You can customize the request handler provided for the SOAP protocol using user exits.
