Request-Response Processor

The Request-Response Processor in Open Cloud MDM serves as the primary entry point, adept at handling requests and generating responses in various formats, optimized for a multi-tenant SaaS architecture.

Functions of the Request Framework:

  • Accepts and Parses Requests: Handles single or composite transactions, with optional transformation before parsing. This supports real-time data synchronization and customizable data management.
  • Authorizes Requests: Ensures robust security and data protection, a necessity in a multi-tenant SaaS environment.
  • Transaction Handling: Seamlessly integrates with Microsoft SQL Server's transaction management capabilities, adept at managing distributed transactions.
  • Service Invocation: Utilizes appropriate controller components, supporting a user-centric design and less-code customization.
  • Response Construction: Efficiently constructs and returns responses in real-time, supporting real-time data synchronization.

Flexibility in Request and Response Formats:

  • Supports various formats such as XML, flat files, and named value pairs, with different schema options. Enabled through pluggable components, this facilitates AI-enhanced data management and hybrid MDM architecture.

Component Details:

  • Service Controller: Operates within the ASP.NET framework, managing transactional properties for scalable, multi-tenant SaaS solutions. It interfaces with all incoming requests.
  • Request Handler: Manages services from underlying components, covering parsing, authorization, and transaction management. Contains controller logic and dispatches requests for further processing.
  • Adaptive Service Interface (ASI): Complies with various XML standards (ACORD, NIEM, IFW), enhancing integration into existing solutions and supporting hybrid MDM architecture. Utilizes Open Cloud MDM Workbench for XSD mapping, enhancing adaptability and user-centric design.
  • Parser: Transforms incoming requests into formats understood by target applications.
  • Constructor: Performs the opposite function of the parser. It converts the data format returned from the target application into a format to be returned to the client, offering dynamic and pluggable parsing.
  • Business Proxies: Facilitates transactions with the Open Cloud MDM core application, allowing the integration of client-specific proxies.
  • XML Composite Transaction Framework: Executes multiple transactions within a single XML request, supporting complex data processing and real-time synchronization.
  • Web Services: Processes SOAP requests and other web services standards within the ASP.NET framework.
  • Messaging Adapter: Utilizes ASP.NET SignalR for asynchronous communication, aligning with real-time data synchronization and integration with various messaging systems.
