Figure 1: Logging into the Enterprise Server node
The Server Explorer view shows the Enterprise servers, which contains Event Process Repository and Peer Repository nodes. By default, the configurations of the Enterprise Server running locally is set on the Enterprise Server node. However, configuration can be changed from the Properties view if required.
On every login, eStudio fetches the information of Services, Event Processes and Peer Servers from the Enterprise Server and populates the online repository. The default location of the online repository for a particular Enterprise Server is $FIORANO_HOME/runtimedata/eStudio/workspace/.repositories/Online/<Enterprise Server name>. Screenshot of the Online Event Process Development mode with an Event Process open is shown below.
The Event Process repository is centrally stored in the Enterprise Server. The Enterprise Server provides API access to the event processes such as to save, view, export, launch, debug, stop, and similar actions as required. The Fiorano eStudio provides an easy-to-use GUI to manage event processes. The Peer Repository shows the peer servers connected to the Enterprise Server.
