About Application Gateways
An application gateway is an optional Packaged CCE feature that allows you to invoke an external application from within a script (using a Gateway node). You can pass data to the application and receive data in return, which you can then examine and use for routing decisions.
Before you can use these nodes in a script, you must first configure the gateways.
The application gateway requires connection information to communicate with the external application. You perform this task using the Unified CCE Administration interface.
