PDC Gateway Monitor

Integration Development and Monitoring Platform

The PDC Gateway Monitor is a powerful development platform for building robust solutions on the PDC Gateway Integration platform. Packed with intuitive easy to use graphical tools for building Gateway interface projects, the development GUI utilizes drag and drop simplicity as well as VB.NET or C# scripting languages for unlimited power and versatility. Combined with the development tools are the monitoring and maintenance features. These allow for a one stop solution for all tasks required to design, build and maintain the interface solution.

   

The PDC Gateway Monitor has the ability to easily connect to multiple instances of the PDC Gateway Server and multiple clients per server. New projects can be quickly created or imported from iomotion's large library of existing projects. Once tested and approved the projects can be assigned to run on the PDC Gateway Server triggered by a timer, some parent process or even the arrival of data from the included IDOC receiver service. Existing projects from our library can be modified to meet virtually any business requirement by utilizing the robust graphical toolset of the PDC Gateway Monitor development GUI. Projects can be easily managed from the system's main development panel and "quick-tested" from within the GUI. Results from recent executions of any process can be reviewed simply by right clicking the process in the project tree and selecting "Latest Results".

   

   

The PDC Gateway Monitor now includes a Clock Management screen (image at left) to easily setup and maintain time clocks. Clocks can be created or deleted and, with drag and drop actions, can be assigned to different groups. The clock configuration can be unique for each clock or it can be common to all clocks in a group. If replacing a currently running legacy Kronos system, the configuration files can be imported and stored in the PDC Gateway clock database. By selecting the configuration record, the XML edit tree is populated and changes can be made to the configuration simply by editing the text in the tree. Update data such as employee information can be automatically generated to the XML records from SAP HR mini-master or from other sources by using the built in mapping functions. Clocks can be set to update at some interval or when fresh data arrives from the source (like an IDOC received via ALE).

   

   

On of the features available in the PDC Gateway Clock Management screen is a menu selection on each clock to view a "Clock Emulator" tool. This viewer assists in the configuration of the clocks by being able to visualize what the buttons will look like before sending the initialization commands to the clocks. The XML formatted configuration files are interpreted by the emulator just as they would be by a 4500 clock. Clicking on a blue button will display the underlying function assigned to the button.

The PDC Gateway Monitor comes with many additional capabilities to create a set of interfaces that will satisfy even the most demanding requirements. Watch this space for new features in the latest version releases.
