The extractor service
provides access to LMS libraries
is a built-in service of the RPC server, which can be enabled/disabled by RPC server configuration settings
depending on the platform where the broker is running, usage can be restricted to certain users or group of users, using EntireX Security; see Authorization of Client and Server.
The extractor service is a prerequisite for the
IDL Extractor for COBOL
used together with a remote extractor environment, see Step 2: Select a COBOL Extractor Environment or Create a New One in the IDL Extractor for COBOL documentation.
The extractor service uses the same class and server names as defined for
the RPC server, and "
EXTRACTOR" as the service name,
the broker service. Please note "
EXTRACTOR" is a
service name reserved by Software AG. See
SERVICE under Broker Attributes.
To enable the extractor service
Set the Batch RPC Server parameter
extractor under Configuring the RPC Server.
Define in the broker attribute file, under the RPC service, an
additional broker service with "
EXTRACTOR" as the
service name and values for class and server identical to those used for the
RPC service. For example, if your RPC service is named
CLASS = RPC SERVER = SRV1 SERVICE = CALLNAT
the extractor service requires the following additional service definition in the Broker attribute file:
CLASS = RPC SERVER = SRV1 SERVICE = EXTRACTOR
Optional. If you need to restrict the use of the extractor service to a
selected group of users, use EntireX Security and define security rules for the
broker service. The service name
EXTRACTOR is a constant.
To disable the extractor service
