User Exits for Request Handlers

This section describes how to write user exit programs that allow you to customize the behavior of the Micro Focus MFRHSOAP request handler.

The Micro Focus MFRHSOAP request handler provides a number of user exit points, enabling you to supply a user exit program that can perform additional processing of input and output parameters.

You can also provide a user exit program for use with a custom request handler, if you find this approach offers advantages over including all the code you need in the request handler itself.

You specify a user exit program and the exit points at which it is to be invoked by the request handler at run time as part of the interface mapping process, described in the chapter COBOL Web Services with the Interface Mapping Toolkit in your Web Services and COBOL book. This information is built into the interface definition table (IDT) associated with the mapped service.
