Create a Data Source
Create a New Data Source
DSEDIT uses a simple wizard to create new data sources. The wizard will present a series of screens requesting specific information necessary to establish a connection to the Omnidex Environment Catalog on the host machine. Before beginning, be sure to have the following required information ready:
The very first step in creating a data source is to run DSEDIT. Click the Data Source Editor icon located in the Omnidex Client Program group to start the program.
Once DSEDIT is running, you will be presented with the start screen. Click New to start the wizard.
Data Source Editor can create four different types of data source objects, two of which can be used on Non-Windows platforms. The descriptions below should help you to determine which is appropriate for your application.
Choose a data source type and click Next.
Each data source must be named uniquely and this name should be fairly descriptive.
Enter the data source and a brief description (optional), then click Next.
Each data source will connect to an Omnidex Environment Catalog on the server.
Enter the environment file specification, access mode, and connect options if any, then click Next.
This section defines server or host information including the name or IP address of the server as well as the Omnidex Network Server (OdxNet) port number that all connections through this data source will pass through.
Enter the host name or IP address, OdxNet listener port number, and a brief description (optional). You can now click the Check Server button to see if the specified OdxNet listener is running on the host. When finished, click Next.
Verify that all of the settings are correct then:
