Sun B2B Suite HIPAA OTD Library User's Guide

HIPAA Validation Support

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.
