Exchange Network Header

The Exchange Network Header version 2.0 provides the capability to append descriptions and process instructions to a document seamlessly without the need to change data schemas. The EN Header provides basic metadata including:

  1. Descriptions of the payload;
  2. Routing information for documents transferred across the Network; and
  3. Additional information such as creator, a timestamp, and a description of the payload content.

It may also be used to describe what operations are to be performed by the receiver and to notify the sender of processing errors.
