OutBound Messages - Best Practice to Receive Them?

Hi - I am completely new to the developer side of things, more of an Admin role tbh. 
I need to send an outbound message using standard and custom fields. The message will be received and the data in the fields will be mapped into counterpart APi field names then sent onto another external system.  

I don't think that I can do this myself, moving forward with todays new web services that are available, should I instruct a developer to continue with a SOAP listener or use REST? 

Any additional reading tips would also be much appreciated .....

Thanks in advance!

For outbound messages, you have to use SOAP.  You can take a look over this article [1] and see how to do it with JBoss Fuse.  And you can take a look at this project [2] to see an example of the response that you should send back to ACK the outbound message.
