Method Detail


public boolean process(MessageContext synCtx)
Attempt to process the given message through one of the available APIs. This method will first try to locate a suitable API for the given message by running it through the API validation routines available. If a matching API is found it will dispatch the message to the located API. If a matching API cannot be found, message will be left intact so any other handlers (eg: main sequence) can pick it up later.

synCtx - MessageContext of the request to be processed
true if the message was dispatched to an API and false otherwise
