Customizing the AppServer agent executable
The AppServer includes a standard AppServer agent executable that, in most cases, requires no customizing. However, you might have special needs that require you to add more software modules (configurable elements) to the executable. For example, the AppServer agent might be using a OpenEdge DataServer to connect to a non-OpenEdge database. In this case, you must include the appropriate DataServer when building the executable.
The AppServer agent executable is essentially a version of the ABL client. Like the ABL client, you can rebuild the AppServer agent executable using the OEBuild utility.
To build a new AppServer agent executable and make it available to your AppServer installation:
*Build the executable using the OEBuild utility according to the instructions provided in OpenEdge Deployment: Managing ABL Applications.
*Specify the pathname for your new AppServer agent executable using OpenEdge Management or OpenEdge Explorer or by setting the srvrExecFile property in the AppServer properties file ( For more information on specifying the pathname for the AppServer agent executable, see Configuring AppServer components.
Note: The srvrExecFile property is a dynamic property. Any changes to the property affect all current and new brokers and agents.
