webMethods Broker Connection

webMethods Broker Connection

The following table describes the properties that you configure for a webMethods broker connection:
Property
Description
Name
Name you want to use for this connection.
Broker Host
Enter the host name of the Broker you want the PowerCenter Integration Service to connect to. If the port number for the Broker is not the default port number, also enter the port number. Default port number is 6849.
Enter the host name and port number in the following format:
<host name:port>
Broker Name
Enter the name of the Broker. If you do not enter a Broker name, the PowerCenter Integration Service uses the default Broker.
Client ID
Enter a client ID for the PowerCenter Integration Service to use when it connects to the Broker during the session. If you do not enter a client ID, the Broker generates a random client ID.
If you select Preserve Client State, enter a client ID.
Client Group
Enter the name of the group to which the client belongs.
Application Name
Enter the name of the application that will run the Broker Client.
Automatic Reconnection
Select this option to enable the PowerCenter Integration Service to reconnect to the Broker if the connection to the Broker is lost.
Preserve Client State
Select this option to maintain the client state across sessions. The client state is the information the Broker keeps about the client, such as the client ID, application name, and client group.
Preserving the client state enables the webMethods Broker to retain documents it sends when a subscribing client application, such as the PowerCenter Integration Service, is not listening for documents. Preserving the client state also allows the Broker to maintain the publication ID sequence across sessions when writing documents to webMethods targets.
If you select this option, configure a Client ID in the application connection. You should also configure guaranteed storage for your webMethods Broker.
If you do not select this option, the PowerCenter Integration Service destroys the client state when it disconnects from the Broker.
