As a new user of Cloverleaf, I’m trying to understand what the common or suggested practice is for when the HL7 ACK is sent.
Currently, I’ve configured our site to immediately return the ACK from the IB thread. However, when routing the message to another application, and the application ACKs with an Application Error, how is that normally handled? My first thought is that the original sending application should be notified of the application error (ie. required field is missing, message is incomplete) — and that I should return the ACK from the application. But that can get messy as more than one application is added to process the message.
I’ve read a few similar posts that suggest that the Application Error should trigger an alert that notifies the sending application via another method, rather than waiting for the ACK.
Is that the commonly suggested/practiced method? Any suggestions or pitfalls to be aware of.
