Chapter 9: CCI.INI - The CCI Configuration File

9.1 CCI.INI Configuration Options

9.1.1 What is the CCI.INI File?

The CCI.INI file is used to specify selective configuration options for all or some CCI modules installed on a system. The contents of the CCI.INI file will vary from system to system in a network, depending upon the requirements for tuning each individual system.

9.1.2 Where to Locate CCI.INI

CCI.INI may be located in a number of locations for testing and deployment. On Windows systems of all types the Windows root directory is a good location as it is visible from all applications.On UNIX systems the COBOL cobdir/bin installation directory or the applications current directory are good logical locations. There may be configuration sections for more than one CCI protocol module in any CCI.INI file so care is required when choosing the location for a CCI.INI file.

If you only want to affect the behavior of a single application, rather than affecting every application on the system, put the CCI.INI file (containing the CCIIPX entries) in the current directory, from where the application is being run.

9.1.3 The Format of CCI.INI
