Administering SAS Servers

Using Integration Technologies, you can implement SAS object servers which use the Integrated Object Model (IOM) to deliver SAS functionality to clients. The IOM provides distributed object interfaces that are based on industry-standard technologies, including Microsoft's Distributed Component Object Model (DCOM) and the Object Management Group's (OMG) Common Object Request Broker Architecture (CORBA).

This section provides the information you need to set up, start, and administer an object server. The following tasks are documented:

  • Choosing the appropriate server configuration for your installation:

    • A COM/DCOM server configuration, which enables client access using COM/DCOM; or

    • An IOM Bridge server configuration, which enables client access using the Integration Technologies IOM Bridge for COM or IOM Bridge for Java.

  • Assigning logical names to groups of related object server resources.

  • Setting up workspace pooling to improve the efficiency of connections between clients and servers.

  • Setting up an object server using either a COM/DCOM configuration or an IOM Bridge configuration. These sections provide detailed instructions for creating the metadata to define your server configuration. Instructions are also provided for enabling and launching the server on the host machine, and for performing server administration and troubleshooting tasks.
