Within each HIPAA OTD are Java methods and Java bean nodes for handling validation as described in performValidation. No pre-built translations are supplied with the OTD libraries. These translations can be built in the Java Collaboration Editor.
HIPAA OTDs have validations and translations, but a validation does not generate an acknowledgment transaction. Instead, the validation generates a string.
The output string of the validation (seecheck and checkAll) is in XML format conforming to the X12OTDErrors.xsd file. Refer to Contents of the X12OTDErrors.xsd File for more information. For a sample of the validation output XML, refer to Sample of Validation Output XML.
