Variable Retry Interval for HTTP Transport

Use case : There is a notion of Retry Count and Time to Acknowledgement in Oracle B2B for HTTP Transport where by B2B Engine retries for a Retry Count number of times with an interval of Time to Acknowedgement between every retries. Consider a practical case where in Partner server is down and it takes few hours to bring it up, hence it may not be practical to retry it immediately.

Details :

Using the Variable Retry Interval it is possible to schedule the retry activity during appropriate time. This will make the retry feature more effective.

To enable this feature set

oracle.tip.transport.HttpSender.TimeToAck = 1,20,120

where it will retry after 1 minute, 20 minute and 2 hour after previous retries.
