The ITU standard defines the specification for the
GSM MAP API in the ASN.1 format with BER
(Basic Encoding Rules). The Object-Oriented API
encapsulates the details of this encoding and
presents a user-friendly mechanism to encode
and decode the operations, without the onerous
manipulation of the TLV (Tag, Length, Value)
formatting. In addition, the API provides the ab-
stractions for buffer management for the mes-
sage and prettyprinting the message contents for
debugging and tracing. A powerful C++ exception
handling subsystem provides error-handling ca-
pabilities for graceful handling by the application
when message/errors occur.
