A basic framework for building RMAS adapters

Project description


This adapter will sit between the [RMAS communication bus] [esb], and the [OpenEthics] [oe] API.

It has one responsibility:

Poll the bus for proposal-created messages, and when one is received, create a new
OpenEthics application form using the OpenEthics API.


This is the example message ([from the RMAS supplier documentation]( that we are targetting:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<message-type>Proposal-created</message-type><!-- RMAS message type -->
<!-- CERIF payload -->

You can push this message to the ESB using the utility module:, but make sure that the ESB is running on localhost at port 7789 first:
