Abstract

Disclosed is a DOS based program called "Quanta" and a Java based application called "Raid Applet", with this we were able to completely automate the Raid configuration process. The "Quanta" program interfaces to the GenesisX manufacturing environment, the DOS based "Raid Utility Programs" that actually configures the Raid adapter and it also provides an interface to the WEB based "Raid Applet" that allows a Customer or Sale Representative to specify the desired Raid configuration. These programs , "Quanta" and "Raid Applet", have completely automated the process by eliminating the piece of paper, human entry into the "Raid Utility Programs" and have provided WEB based access for the customer through the "Raid Applet" to configure their Raid adapter.
