Data Table creation using File as back end (File connection as system connection)
Creating data tables with file connection
Creating data tables with file connection as system connection can be achieved by following simple procedure as mentioned in this blog.
First of all decide what data is expected in data table according to business requirement(need to be key value pairs).
Place all data in a file as mentioned below…(file name can be anything)
file name “DataTables.txt”
Then in agentry editor (Eclipse) configure the data table as follows :
Create a new data table using File System Connection…
configure it as follows…
Here Name of table (highlighted) is important and should match with what is written in DataTables.txt [flights],[bookingcounters] etc.
Give file name as “DataTables.txt”..
Similarly we can configure other tables as well (here for e.g. bookingcounters table)
Deploy file/s in serverdev directory:
Now Create a folder with name “tables” in “Serverdev” folder (where your agentry server is installed).
Place “DataTables.txt” file in this newly created folder “tables”.
Then publish your application(data tables) from eclipse and sync data tables,
Now you can see Data Tables created as shown below (seen & verified in ATE)
