Roadmap to Building a Data Cartridge, 3 of 5
Before you can use a data cartridge, you must install it. Installation is the process of assembling the sub-components so that the server can locate them and understand the object type definitions.
Putting the sub-components in place involves defining object types and tables in the server (usually accomplished by running SQL scripts), putting dynamic link libraries in the location expected by the linkage specification, and copying on-line documentation, help files, and error message files to a managed location.
Telling the server about the object types involves running SQL scripts that load the individual object types defined by the cartridge. This step must be done from a privileged account.
Finally, users of the cartridge must be granted the necessary privileges to use it.
