Using default sample brokers
Most Unified Broker products have a default, sample broker that is immediately available for use. The purpose of these brokers is to help you quickly become familiar with and use the functionality associated with these products.
In most instances, the sample brokers require little, if any, modification and no validation. Although you can continue to use these sample brokers when you are operational in either a production or development mode, it is not advisable to do so. Consider modifying these files, using the edit capabilities of such tools as OpenEdge Management or OpenEdge Explorer or mergeprop utility, for the purposes of security and tailoring them to your exact needs. A sample broker, by default, is not connected to a database. If you elect to use a default sample broker, you will need to modify it if you need a database connection.
The following table identifies each default, sample brokers associated with each Unified Broker product.
