Exchange Plugins

All exchange plugins make use of the CoDaBix® Exchange Model. Each storage engine provided is registered and administrated by the CoDaBix® Exchange Manager.

Such storage engines can be:

  • Database management systems like
    • Microsoft SQL Server
    • MySQL
    • Oracle
  • Database files like
    • Excel
    • CSV (see CSV Exchange Plugin)
The CoDaBix® Exchange Model extends the basic CoDaBix® Entity Model with entities typical for the exchange. Hereby an exchange entity defines the subordinated entities for control, settings, the status of the plugin and the various channels via which the plugin connects the supported storage engines to CoDaBix®.
Each exchange plugin delivered with CoDaBix® is directly and exclusively configurable in the CoDaBix® Host application. If a plugin has configuration parameters, those can be modified in the according exchange entity.

Using CoDaBix®

The entire configuration of all exchange plugins can be found under the Node path /System/Interfaces. This root Node of the exchange plugins allows the complete configuration of the exchange plugins, provided that one of the actively used exchange plugins supplies its own exchange entities for the configuration.
