There are five decision branches where custom logic can be inserted. At specific points in match processing, the execute match methods look for the value of the methods listed below. For more information about the methods, see the Javadocs for the master index. These methods are contained in the ExecuteMatchLogics class in the package com.stc.eindex.master. For information about where the decision points are reached in the processing logic and how to change the logic, see Understanding Sun Master Index Processing (Repository). The following methods specify the custom logic.
bypassMatching - Indicates whether to perform the match process on incoming records or to bypass the match process.
disallowAdd - Indicates whether an incoming message can be inserted as a new record.
disallowUpdate - Indicates whether an incoming record can update an existing record.
rejectAssumedMatch - Indicates whether to accept or reject an assumed match of two records.
rejectUpdate - Indicates whether to accept or reject an update to an existing record.
