The file consists of a hierarchical structure of configuration entities, where parent entities provide configuration information that you can override or extend in each child entity. Each configuration entity has a name that begins the entity definition, and the definition contains configuration settings for one or more product instances. The AppServer configurations in are shown in the the following table.

Defines default property settings for all NameServer, AppServer, DataServer, and WebSpeed Transaction Server brokers.
Defines default property settings for all instances of an AppServer.
[UBroker.AS. product-instance-name ]
Defines property settings for this instance of an AppServer. The file can contain several of these entities, each with a unique product-instance-name.
Parent entities provide default values for all of their child entities. However, at any child level, a redefinition of any value supersedes the default value of its parent. All children from the redefinition level down inherit this new value.
