Configurable Network Computing Fundamentals
JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Tools Configurable Network Computing Implementation Guide
JD Edwards EnterpriseOne provides an environment as a pointer to data and logic
objects. For example, in the Purchase Order application the answers are as follows:
3.3.2 Path Codes
A path code can refer to the central development objects on the deployment server or
to replicated objects on a workstation or logic server. A path code exists for each
unique set of central objects. For example, you might have a set of objects reserved for
software updates that you can deploy to users and a set of objects that you reserve for
A set of objects or the path code can reside in these locations:
Contains the central set of development objects specifications. All development occurs
in this location. The path code connects the specifications and the C components on
the deployment server.
Contains a replicated set of objects that JD Edwards EnterpriseOne uses at run time.
Shared Object Server
Contains a replicated set of objects that JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Enterprise and JAS
servers use to process logic on these servers.
The Object Path table (F00942) contains path codes that track a set of objects and their
location within JD Edwards EnterpriseOne.
3.3.3 Data Sources
A data source is the specific location of data or distributed processing. JD Edwards
EnterpriseOne data sources can be:
An entire database in a specific location, regardless of the type of database, such as
a MSDE located in a specific directory or a library in DB2 for IBM i
A specific machine in the enterprise that processes logic
The platform and data sources work together. You must define both the server that
processes the logic and the databases that store the data. If multiple databases within
one database management system (DBMS) reside on a machine, you must define each
database to JD Edwards EnterpriseOne.
Where is my data?
A user clicks the Find button to locate a Purchase Order. The
environment determines in which database the table resides.
What machine will process my
When finished entering an order, the user clicks OK. The
environment determines where the logic (a master business
function) necessary to record the transaction will process and
where the transaction tables reside to enter the order.
What directory contains the
object being processed?
After entering a user ID and password, a user must select the
environment to log on to. If you have multiple sets of objects,
selecting the environment determines which objects that JD
Edwards EnterpriseOne executes (the directory in which
they reside). This location is called a path code, and JD
Edwards EnterpriseOne defines it in the Library List Master
File (F0094) table.
