/images/arrow_right.png IGeneralCreditResponse::GetTransport method
Returns the transport information that is the routing information going from a sender (from) over at least one intermediate (via) to the receiver (to). All the involved parties are defined by EAN numbers as defined by Stiftung Refdata.

In fact the meaning and the data is mirrored from the corresponding request thus the initial sender becomes the recipient and the initial recipient becomes the sender. Furthermore the chain of intermediates from the request is reversed and the infoset is sent to the first intermediate of the reversed list. The given intermediate here is therefore the last one before reaching the receiver.

If the parameters for the signature and encryption were set then these data are returned as well otherwise the corresponding variables are empty.

/images/arrow_right.png Calling argument description
[out] BSTR *pbstrFromEAN The GLN number of the sender as supplied by Stiftung Refdata

Note that this is the initial receiver of the request since the transport information from the request is mirrored in the response

[out] BSTR *pbstrViaEAN The GLN number of the last intermediate as supplied by Stiftung Refdata

Note that this is the initial (first) intermediate of the request since the transport information from the request is mirrored in the response

[out] BSTR *pbstrToEAN The GLN number of the receiver as supplied by Stiftung Refdata

Note that this is the initial sender of the request since the transport information from the request is mirrored in the response

[out] BSTR *pbstrToBinDERFile If the XML infoset was signed then bstrToBinDERFile is a full file name (path + name) to the extracted binary DER certificate that is the public certificate of the "from" entity. The certificate file is named X509DER_FromEAN.cer and must be copied away since the used temporary directory is emptied when the module shuts down.

Note that this certificate can be used to encrypt a request XML infoset for the "from" entity.

[out, retval] VARIANT_BOOL *pbStatus Return status of the method. If pbStatus is VARIANT_FALSE then an error occurred and GetAbortInfo should be called to retrieve the error string.
 
/images/arrow_right.png C/C++ return value
S_OK This value is returned if the function call was successful or if the return value of a boolean method signalling a true value. In this case the VARIANT_BOOL is set to VARIANT_TRUE.
S_FALSE This is the return value of a boolean method signalling a false return value. In this case the VARIANT_BOOL is set to VARIANT_FALSE.
E_name This value is returned if the function call was unsuccessful and an error exception was generated. Note that if you are using SmartPointers an exception is thrown under these conditions.
