CSF SBE Server Order Handling 3.0 Developer Guide

Welcome to the Microsoft Order Handling Standard Business Event (OHSBE) documentation. The OHSBE is an order activation, service activation, and provisioning product. It serves as an intermediary application between your order management system and value-added services (VASs) that you want to include in your service or product offerings. The OHSBE is designed to be part of an XML Web service ecosystem and communicates with VASs for order fulfillment through a CSF Session. OHSBE can interact with your existing order management systems or you can integrate it alongside a new order management system as you develop it. OHSBE is highly extensible. There are numerous configuration items and a set of compiled libraries that enable the OHSBE to dynamically accept any industry-standard XML schema as an order.

OHSBE is made up of five components, the OHSBE Web Service Enhancements 3.0 (WSE) Web service, the OHSBE Monitor Windows Service, the OHSBE configuration tool, the OHSBE Microsoft Management Console (MMC) snap-in, and the OHSBE MOM pack.
