[Closed] Calling MRE-procedure from EDASERVE?

Hi there,

my search on Focal Point was resultless, therefore I'm gonna try it this way:

I know how to call a fex stored which is stored EDASERVE's appfolder from MRE with:

-MRNOEDIT -INCLUDE appfolder/program.fex
-EXIT


Now I'm looking for the opposite way; this means that I want to call a procedure stored in MRE from EDASERVE, something like:


-INCLUDE MREFOLDER/procedure.fex
-EXIT



Any ideas are - as always - appreciated.



Kind regards,

Stefan

JG,

my fex on EDASERVE looks like this:

APP MAP APP1 c:\WebFOCUS76\basedir\mypath\app
APP PREPENDPATH APP1

-*APP SHOWPATH

-INCLUDE APP1/myfex.fex


Running this fex gives me the error FOC227.

Still no idea.

Stefan that does not look correct to me.

Unless you are using a non-standard basedir it should at least be

c:\ibi\WebFOCUS76\basedir\mypath\app

Also check that the fex is actually called what you think it is which may be different from the MRE display name.

Also make sure that MRE (The web component of WF) is on the same box as the server.

Hi,

my WebFOCUS installation path is correct.

MRE and server are on the same box.

Still investigating...

Hi,

if I am right, you don't need the APP1.
Just call -INCLUDE MYFEX

Bear in mind: if the target MR fex uses any MR-specific statement syntax, you're still up the creek.

That would include any use of
-MRNOEDIT


or -include of other MR fex files:

-INCLUDE [domainname]/APP/fexname

including use of any other objects within the MRE structure like images. I would be VERY careful about adding your MRE basedir to the app path of the server. If you're not careful, you could be circumventing the entire security layer that MRE uses. Personally, I would never do this. It can be handled better by use of the proper parameters in the request (IBIMR_action, IBIMR_sub_action,IBIMR_drill,IBIMR_domain,IBIMR_fex,IBIMR_folder, etc.) You can find them all by publishing a report within MRE and then looking at the parameters that are created in the default launch page.

Darin

If I understand you correctly, you want the procedure to execute in WebFOCUS and FOCUS (you refer to it as EDASERVE).

The only method I found to work is to use the full path in the include statement.

-INCLUDE /u01/iadmin/ibi/WebFOCUS76/basedir/domainname/app/program.fex [.fex is optional]

If you want the procedure to run in both WebFOCUS and FOCUS you will need to make a few additional adjustments.

I hope I understood your requirement correctly. I hope this helps.

Hi there,

with help from IBI support it works like this:
quote:

APP MAP APP1 c:\WebFOCUS76\basedir\mypath\app
APP PREPENDPATH APP1
-RUN

-INCLUDE APP1/myfex.fex


@Darin Lee:
Can you tell me were I can get more information on the parameters (IBIMR_action,...) you mentioned?

Kind regards,

Stefan
