The Pipeline Manager is a system that executes a series of processors, which are linked in processor chains. A processor is a component that executes a piece of functionality and returns a status code. The status code determines which processor in the chain to execute next. The Pipeline Manager enables you to dynamically add and remove processors and chains of processors. The Pipeline Manager does so in a transactionally aware way, supporting a subset of the transactional modes that EJB supports.

The pipeline functionality is part of the main Dynamo Application Framework, but it is used primarily by ATG Commerce.
