API browser of generalnotification451 COM module
Interface version: 4.51
Interface date: 28 Sep 2018

The GeneralNotificationManager is an ATL COM module that provides methods to generate an email like structured message exchange between two partners. The produced XML infoset is transported electronically to the recipient and optionally can be signed and/or encrypted.

Structured message exchange means that the message thread is uniquely identified by the notification object reference and optionally the target of the message exchange can be defined by a dependent object reference of type credit, invoice, reminder, MCD, or form.

Furthermore, by using the formOID attribute of the message a form process can be initiated at any point of the message exchange. Additionally, a infinite number of documents of a well defined type (.jpg, .png and .pdf) can be attached and transported in each step of the communication.
