Graphical User Interface for Independent Software Vendors
for LAN Netview Fix
a Graphical User Interface (GUI) that allows LAN
NetView* Fix to be enabled for use by Independent Software Vendors
addresses the need for a GUI that can be used
to update the Common Management Information Protocol (CMIP) resources
that the Fix program registers to receive. The modifications could
be due to changes brought about by a new release of an IBM resource
or an ISV.
disclosure addresses a GUI that can be used to add,
update, and delete resource IDs that could be sending CMIP
notifications to Fix.
The initial window provides the following capabilities:
o Selecting a resource ID from a list of known resource IDs.
The resource ID can then be modified or deleted. There are
five OS/2 resources that are defined by the Fix program. They
- OS/2 Database Manager
- OS/2 LAN Server
- OS/2 LAN Requester
- OS/2 Communications Manager
- OS/2 CMIP Notification API
After these resources are modified or deleted, there is a
mechanism that allows them to be reset back to their default
values (that is, the shipped values).
o The ability to update a resource ID.
Updating a resource ID is required, because the resource is
subject to change from one release to another. Since that
product is not shipped with the Fix program, an update function
must be provided.
o The ability to delete a resource ID.
Deleting a resource ID is useful to clean up the resource
ID list when those resource IDs are not being used.
o The ability to add a new resource ID.
Adding new resource IDs includes both ISV resource IDs and
user-defined resource IDs.
window that is displayed depends on the action (add,
update, or delete) selected. For delete, a delete confirmation
message window is displayed. For update or add, the next window
provides the following information:
o The resource ID
For update, this field cannot be changed. For add, this
field is required and must specify a unique resource ID (that is,
duplicate resource IDs are not allowed).
o The resource ID description
