Configure Docupresentment (IDS) to run Documaker Server (Documaker RP). (Doc ID 788400.1)

Last updated on JULY 01, 2021

Applies to:

Oracle Documaker - Version 10.2 to 11.5
Information in this document applies to any platform.


The purpose of this bulletin is to describe the steps required to configure feature 1133, running Documaker Server (RP) under Docupresentment (IDS).


The intended audience for this bulletin is the Systems Administrator or the user who has received training and can make technical modifications to the environments running Documaker Server (RP), and Docupresentment (IDS).

This bulletin is valid for products known as Documaker Server (Rules Processing), DAP and IDS.

IDS can be set up to run Documaker RP as a subordinate process.  Web clients communicate with IDS using queues. Communication between IDS and Documaker RP is via XML files called job tickets and job logs. 

IDS can start or stop RP as needed, without user interaction. IDS and RP must be on same machine. One IDS session controls one Documaker RP process.  You can, however, implement multiple IDS sessions and have multiple RP processes as well. 

Keep in mind these limitations:

*  You can only run Documaker RP in single step mode. Consult the Documaker Server System Guide for more information on single step processing.

*  Different resource setups for Documaker RP are supported, but Documaker RP processing restarts if resources are changed, eliminating the performance benefits. This should not be a problem because it is unlikely multiple RP setups will be used with a single IDS implementation. You can, however, experience problems testing a system with multiple setups.

*  During processing, some INI options can be changed by the client. Since some Documaker RP rules use static variables and store INI values in memory, it is possible that a client will be unable to change an INI option if those Documaker RP rules are used. To handle these situations, you must restart Documaker RP.

* IDS and Documaker RP must exist on the same node/server machine.
