Database Administration Entity Interface Reference : IArea interface

IArea interface

The IArea interface allows you to work with areas without editing a structure description (.st) file.
The underlying implementation generates a .st file and passes it as a parameter to the PROSTRCT utility in order to add it to the database the service is managing.
Note: The current implementation supports a minimum of validation. Most error conditions are caught when the underlying PROSTRCT utility is executed. This error message might include information about where in the .st file the error occurred and also indicate that "prostrct failed". Some of this error information might appear irrelevant or confusing because the .st file on which PROSTRCT operates is generated by the API. Future versions will likely have more validation at an earlier stage and not include the specific PROSTRCT details in messages.
