6 Using the Endeca Connector Adapter

This chapter explains how to use the Endeca Connector in Development and Production environments.

Using the Endeca Connector Adapter

Development Environment

The following are the steps for using the Endeca Connector Attribute Discovery and the Endeca Connector Adapter in a development/QA environment:

  1. Endeca developers create a new project using the Endeca Developer Studio.

  2. Developers add the Endeca Connector Adapter (Java Manipulator) to the Endeca Project.

  3. Developers then run the Endeca Connector program to update the Endeca project.

  4. Developers may re-open the project in the Endeca Developer Studio and create dimensions/properties/precedence rules are now part of the project.

  5. Developers can run the Endeca Connector program independently of the Endeca Developer Studio if the data lens item definition attributes have been changed.


    The project needs to be re-loaded to see the new attributes.

  6. When the developers are done testing, the Endeca Project is sent to the production environment.

Production Environment

The tested Endeca pipeline is deployed in the production environment.

Changes made to the data lens (using Knowledge Studio) should be checked into the development/QA environment for testing, prior to deployment to the Oracle DataLens Production Server Group for real-time processing.

When the Endeca baseline update is run on the production data, no additional steps are needed for the data lens processing. The processing has already been setup as part of the Endeca Pipeline as described in the previous chapters and requires no external intervention during production processing by Endeca.
