Focal Point Banner


As of December 1, 2020, Focal Point is retired and repurposed as a reference repository. We value the wealth of knowledge that's been shared here over the years. You'll continue to have access to this treasure trove of knowledge, for search purposes only.

New TIBCO Community Coming Soon
In early summer, TIBCO plans to launch a new community—with a new user experience, enhanced search, and expanded capabilities for member engagement with answers and discussions! In advance of that, the current myibi community will be retired on April 30. We will continue to provide updates here on both the retirement of myibi and the new community launch.

What You Need to Know about Our New Community
We value the wealth of knowledge and engagement shared by community members and hope the new community will continue cultivating networking, knowledge sharing, and discussion.

During the transition period, from April 20th until the new community is launched this summer, myibi users should access the TIBCO WebFOCUS page to engage.

I would like to be able to get the path of the current APPROOT into a Dialog Manager &variable to make my focexec work in both our test and prod server environments without recoding it (we need an absolute path for some UNIX commands).

I've searched FP pretty hard, but didn't find the magic syntax, but did learn a bunch of other interesting stuff !

TIA,


Regards,
Dave

If you need to get the Physical location of APPROOT try &APPROOT.

If you need to see App folders use APP LIST.

If you need to see the Folder Contents use APP QUERY {folder}

APP LIST AND QUERY have a HOLD option, so you can TABLE file result, FOCAPPL and FOCAPPQ.

Hope This Helps
