AS2 Adapter Capabilities

The AS2 Adapter enables you to create an integration between an AS2 trading partner and Oracle Integration. Applicability Statement 2 (AS2) is a protocol for transporting structured business-to-business (B2B) data securely and reliably over the internet. Security is achieved by using digital certificates, encryption, and message compression.

The AS2 Adapter provides the following benefits:

  • Trigger and invoke connections for handling inbound and outbound AS2 messages.

  • Encryption/decryption, signing/signature verification, and compression/decompression of messages as per AS2 specifications.

  • Supports the following payload types: EDI, XML, or anything that AS2 can support.

  • Establishes a connection to the AS2-compliant B2B system to enable sending or receiving messages.
  • Supports receiving and sending business messages or MDN acknowledgments.
  • Enables you to configure outbound and inbound message delivery using the Adapter Endpoint Configuration Wizard.
  • Sends business messages and consumes synchronous MDN acknowledgment in the outbound direction. Produces an encrypted, signed, and compressed business message.
  • Consumes business messages and MDN acknowledgments in the inbound direction. Synchronous and asynchronous MDN acknowledgment deliveries are supported.
  • Supports basic and advanced security policies. If you select the Invoke or Trigger and Invoke role when creating an AS2 Adapter connection, you can optionally select to use two-way SSL connections in the outbound direction. See Configure Connection Properties.

The AS2 Adapter is one of many predefined adapters included with Oracle Integration. You can configure the AS2 Adapter as a trigger or an invoke connection in an integration in Oracle Integration.
