Accessing Remote Files

Enabling your applications to use AcuServer requires that your applications reference remote files with remote name notation. To ensure that all references to remote files include remote name notation, you need to know how your application currently finds data files:

If your file paths are hard-coded in your source code, you'll need to modify them to add remote name notation. A better approach, however, is to remove hard-coded paths and to replace them with the FILE_PREFIX configuration variable, or name aliases.

Note: If your application exclusively uses FILE_PREFIX and/or CODE_PREFIX to define data and code file search paths, all you need to do to enable your application to use AcuServer is to add remote paths to the definition of FILE_PREFIX and CODE_PREFIX.
