Detect Duplicates


Could anyone let me know if there is a built-in feature in webMethods which can detect duplicates based on one of the fields in published document. (Similar to the one with UUID in case of exactly-once processing, but I require this check is based on the field of my choice)

If there isn’t, could you please let me know if there is any probable solution other than the use of database to detect these ‘custom’ duplicates.


1.You can achieve by maintaining the file.

My understanding is, we have to write a custom ‘documentResolver’ for this as the duplicates are functional duplicates not technical duplicates. As suggested, database or file would be an option to check for duplicates.

Any other suggestions/experiences on this for better handling of functional duplicates?
