2  AOC Interface Messages

2.1 AOC Message

2.1.1  Message Overview

In order to route messages accurately and effectively each message must be 'wrapped' such that the original message becomes the body and the header contains all the routing information needed by Jeppesen Solution Integrator (JSI).

The JSI wrapper wraps all inter-application and inter-process communications whether request/response, or publish/subscribe. It contains information about the type of message but no information about the content of the message. Such content is contained in the ICD between the sending application and receiving application.

Refer to the Message Overview for additional information concerning the use of this message.
