Abstract

A program is disclosed that introduce a Event Channel runtime tool which display the events flow through the event network. In a complicate event channel network application, events flow from one event supplier to another event consumers are invisible to the user. An event consumer may not receive any events simply because the connection to the Event Channel is not established. It is desirable to be able to watch the events flow so user may detect any incorrect connections or missing connections in the network channel.

A Runtime Notification Service Tool which Visually Display the Events
Flow Through the Event Network to Help User Detect Un-Connected Objects
in the Network Channel Application

   A program is disclosed that introduce a Event Channel
runtime tool which display the events flow through the event
network.  In a complicate event channel network application, events
flow from one event supplier to another event consumers are invisible
to the user.  An event consumer may not receive any events simply
because the connection to the Event Channel is not established.  It
is desirable to be able to watch the events flow so user may detect
any incorrect connections or missing connections in the network
channel.

   By using the Event Service Tool, user may drag and drop
Event Channels, Push Suppliers, Pull Suppliers, Push Consumers, and
Pull Consumers from the object factory onto the display area.  The
user may also draw rubber banding links between objects to define
connections.  Code will be generated as soon as the link is
connected.  A run action will execute the new generated code to allow
events passing through the new Event Channel network.

   The user may select any object in the network, an action
panel will be displayed.  the user may select "show events flow"
option and all the events come in to that object or come out of that
object will be traced visually.  Blinking dashed lines will be
displayed to indicate the current events flow.  Any missing links or
