Pre Processing XSL Configuration

Pre Processing XSL configuration can be used to transform request message before processing it. Click the ellipses button against the property to configure the properties.

Refer to the Pre/Post Processing XSL Configuration section under the Common Configurations page for details regarding Pre Processing XSL configuration and Post Processing XSL configuration (below). 

Post Processing XSL Configuration

Post Processing XSL configuration can be used to transform response message before sending it to the output port. 

Process Message Based on Property

The property helps components to skip certain messages from processing.

Refer to the Process Message Based On a Property section under the Common Configurations page.

Threadpool Configuration

This property is used when there is a need to process messages in parallel within the component, still maintaining the sequence from the external perspective.

  • This needs to be used only in such circumstances.
  • If sequential processing is not required, please use sessions on the input port.

Click the Threadpool Configuration ellipses button to configure the Threadpool Configuration properties.

Figure 5: Threadpool Configuration properties

Enable Thread Pool

Enable this option to configure the properties that appear as below.

Pool Size

The number of requests to be processed in parallel within the component. Default value is '1'.

Batch Eviction Interval (in ms)

Time in milliseconds after which the threads are evicted in case of inactivity. New threads are created in place of evicted threads when new requests are received. Default value is '1000'.

Functional Demonstration

Scenario 1

Configure the component to send events as described in the component description and connect Feeder and Display components to send input and receive output respectively.

Provide a name for the event in the CPS.
