Publish Service

The Publish Service enables applications to do the following:

  • create and populate collections of information that are called packages. Reports, tables, and documents are examples of the types of information that a package can contain.

  • publish and retrieve packages using the following delivery transports:

    • archive transport, which is used to publish and retrieve binary archive files

    • channel transport, which is used to publish to a publication channel

    • requester transport, which is used to retrieve packages that are accessible by a SAS Workspace Server

    • WebDAV transport, which is used to publish to and retrieve from a WebDAV server.

  • generate a SASPackage Event, which contains information about a package that has been published.

For detailed usage documentation and examples, see in the Foundation Services class documentation.

For information about using publish and subscribe software components and SAS CALL routines, see Publishing Framework.

For instructions about configuring and administering channels and subscriptions for the Publishing Framework, see the Publishing Framework section in the SAS Integration Technologies: Administrator's Guide.
