The Windows-NT version of eChange Man is a combination of server, and clients. Clients can use either a Win32 based browser or a Java based browser. These examples are all using the Win32 based browser.
Install eChange Man Server according to the installation guide provided with it.
Create a directory on the NT server for the source code files (if this is on a different server than eChangeMan was installed on then a communication agent must be installed on the machine hosting the directory). This will become the primary ‘Production Area’.
Share the created directory as ‘echangeman’, allowing full read-write (it will be modified later, to restrict access)..
Connect drive M: on an NT Workstation to the NT share ‘echangeman’
For the purposes of this demonstration, the default directory of the shortcut used to start the IDF should be m:\ (the drive where the sources have been loaded).
Install eChange Man client (either the win32 or Java client, but the win32 client is the only one that will be discussed here) on the NT Workstation.
Install Uniface and UD6/CMtool Driver on to the NT Workstation.
Alter the Joins File (in the Uniface bin directory) to locate the source code on drive M:
Alter the usys.asn file to have a ’catchall’ to direct all non-joined source code to drive M:, set the $MAXFILES and set temporary files to be stored in another database.
Start and then close the IDF to initialise an empty repository. (For the purposes of this demonstration, the default directory of the shortcut used to start the IDF should be m:\ (the drive where the sources have been loaded). The file m:\sources\other\udicver.xml now exists.
Add the ‘nokeycheck’ parameter to the USYS$UD6_PARAMS setting in the usys.asn file (this setting improves the performance of the UD6 driver for bulk load operations, but must be disabled for normal use).
Load the repository from a backup with a command like:
idf /com=100 /cpy trx:7204bkp07Feb2000.trx idf:
(some unix environments may require the /com=10 switch to reduce the number of file handles used).
Alter the usys.asn file to remove the ‘nokeycheck’ parameter.
