This Generic Function belongs to Working Area Middleware. This function offers to direct messages from one instance of a Message Handling facility to the appropriate next one, and/or within the current instance. As such, it can be seen as a specialized form of Distribution. The message direction is accomplished by performing one or more of the following actions on messages:

  • Interpreting destination addresses included in the message;
  • Routing and forwarding;
  • Multiplying a message (e.g. when intended for multiple recipients).

Optionally, forwarding decisions can be based not only on address information, but also on filtering criteria. However, for practical reasons this functionality is described in, and assigned to, the Generic Function Filtering.
