10 Understanding Media Object Queues

This chapter discusses these topics:

10.1 Overview

Media objects enable the attachment of information to Release 9.1 applications. Media Object Queues enable you to specify the storage location of media objects to be tracked by reference as opposed to physical network location. This enables easier administration of media locations.

Media object queues provide the system administrator the ability to easily manage the storage of media objects and helps in a Release 9.1 configuration. Within Release 9.1, set up media object queues in order to use images that are outside the domain of the imaging product (for example, scanned images).

Define a media object queue to identify the pointer to the location where the actual image files or Object Linking and Embedding (OLE) objects reside. For OLE objects, the name of the queue must be OLEQUE. The media object queues must reside on a Microsoft Windows-based machine. A valid network-qualified path must exist for this machine. Use the Deployment Server or any other Microsoft Windows-based machine.

If you modify the OLEQUE path, make sure to copy the image files and OLE objects to the new location.

When using the Deployment Server to store media object queues, remember to make the machine available for use daily by Release 9.1 applications.

Media object queue paths are shipped with generic server names. To enable media object queues at the customer site, enter the Deployment Server name in the media object queue path.

10.2 Modifying Media Object Queues

To modify your media object queues:

  1. Log into Release 9.1 as JDE in the DEP910 environment.

  2. From System Administration Tools (GH9011), select Media Object Queues (P98MOQUE).

  3. To define the location for a new OLE queue, click Add.

  4. Complete these fields:

    • Name

      Enter a valid value for your queue.

    • Path

      Generally the queue paths include server_name and queue_name. Replace server_name with the name of the Deployment Server or the location of the media object queue. A valid queue path for a network location might be:

      \\server_name\E910\queue_name

      where server_name is your Deployment Server and queue_name is the name of the media object queue.

      When using ComposerCBT, the media object queue path does not require \\ or server_name. ComposerCBT is shipped with an x for the drive name. To enable the Composer CBT queue, replace the x with the drive letter that the workstation uses to access the server where the media object queues reside. For example: N:\Mediaobj\ComposerCBT.

  5. To change an existing media object queue, click Find to display a list of queue names and their paths.

  6. On Work With Media Object Queues, select the queue name you want to modify.

  7. On Media Object Queues, change the information in the Queue Path On-Line field to reflect the new location.

  8. Copy the image files and OLE objects to the new location.

  9. Exit Release 9.1 and log back on to enable the changes.

10.3 Specifying the Help Location Used by the Web Client and Development Client

To specify the help location used by the Web Client and Development Client:

  1. From System Administration Tools (GH9011), select Media Object Queues (P98MOQUE).

  2. To define the location for the Help file that is used by the Web Client, on Media Object Queues, enter Help in the Name field and click Find.

    Surrounding text describes moque_revs_help.png.
  3. On Media Object Queue Revisions, complete these fields:

  4. Click OK to return to the Work With Media Objects form.

  5. To define the location for the Help Content Queue that is used by the Development Client, on Media Object Queues, enter Help Content in the Name field and click Find.

    Surrounding text describes moque_revs_help_content.png.
  6. On Media Object Queue Revisions, complete these fields:

    Surrounding text describes moque_help_verify.png.
  7. On Work With Media Object Queues, enter Help* in the QBE for Queue Name and verify the two help queues are added.

  8. Exit Release 9.1 and log back on to enable the changes.
