Publishing a Batch Class
After you select all your batch class settings—and every time you make changes—you must
publish your batch class before you can use it. The publishing process checks the integrity of the
settings in your batch class, and makes the batch class available for use. If problems are found
with any of the settings, error and warning messages will display along with the recommended
actions for fixing the problems.
If you ever decide to edit your batch class, you must republish your batch class before your
changes can be used. Your changes will not be applied to batches created before the batch class
Changes made to the release script are the same as changes to the batch class, so to apply any
changes made to either the release setup or to the batch class, you must republish the batch class.
Any changes you make will not be applied to batches created before the batch class was
X To publish a batch class
Start the Ascent Capture Administration module. The module’s main screen will display.
Select the batch class tab from the Definitions panel, and right-click the applicable batch
class. A context menu will display.
From the context menu, select Publish. The Publish dialog box will display.
From the Publish dialog box, select your batch class and click Publish. Ascent Capture
will check all of your batch class settings and display the results in the Results box.
If no problems are detected, the message “Publishing successful” will display.
If problems are detected, error or warning messages will display along with the
recommended actions to resolve the problems. Perform the recommended actions, and
then try to publish the batch class again.
Run some sample batches through the system to test the operation of the release script.
After successfully publishing, you can create batches based on your batch class. As your batches
flow through your Ascent Capture system, they will be routed from module to module. The
modules that are used to process a batch, and the order that processing occurs, are specified as
part of the batch class definition.
Refer to the Ascent Capture Help for more information about batch classes (Ascent Capture Help
keyword: Batch classes > about).
With the Ascent 7.0 Release Script for Oracle Content Services 10g, the Ascent Capture Release
module will process batches based on the settings of the associated batch classes. The Release
module is responsible for releasing documents, as well as index data using the attributes defined
during release setup.
The Ascent Capture Release module usually runs as an unattended module on a Windows
workstation, periodically polling the Release module for available batches. The Release module
may be configured to run during off-hours to avoid any impact to the throughput of Ascent
Capture and/or the network system. To start the Release module, select Start | Programs |
