Chapter 5: Using PowerDynamo with EAServer
For PowerDynamo to access EAServer as a client, the machine on which PowerDynamo is installed must be set up properly. This setup depends on whether you are using ActiveX, Java, or MASP calls from the PowerDynamo client to the EAServer components.
Setting up PowerDynamo to use ActiveX
Ensure that EAServer Manager is installed on the PowerDynamo machine. If you do not install EAServer Manager on the PowerDynamo machine, you must copy and register the TLB/REG files for the package onto the PowerDynamo machine.
Install the ActiveX Proxy Automation Server on the PowerDynamo machine.
From EAServer Manager, connect to the server that contains the required components.
Generate TLB/REG files for the package, which generates ActiveX proxy objects that are used to create instances on the client and invoke methods on remote EAServer components.
Verify that the package has been registered.
Setting up PowerDynamo to use Java
Ensure that EAServer Manager is installed on the PowerDynamo machine.
From EAServer Manager, generate stubs for the desired package.
Ensure that the Java Code Base path is in your CLASSPATH.
Compile the generated Java files.
Ensure that the Sun Java VM has been set. This is the only VM that works with EAServer.
Ensure that PowerDynamo is configured for Java support.
Set your default EAServer settings.
Setting up PowerDynamo to use MASP
Setting up PowerDynamo as a client machine to use MASP calls requires only that a connection to EAServer exists. There are two types of connections that you can create:
System 11 ODBC data source connection
Open Client connection
For detailed information on setting up Java or ActiveX clients, or accessing EAServer MASP methods from a client, see the EAServer Programmer's Guide.
