Generic Socket Listener
This Listener allows the user to specify a Generic Socket based protocol over which data will be received into the eiConsole environment.
You will see three different tabs: Basic, Advanced and Scenario.
1. Basic – The Port specifies the inbound port to which the external system will connect. The Char Set configuration option specifies the character set that the source system will use to write data through into the eiConsole.
2. Advanced – This tab has the option:
To initialize the Listener on trigger only.
Allow command-line invocation: If enabled, listener can be invoked using the CLI client application.
Restart on listening error: If enabled, listener will be restarted after error accur.
Keep Socket Open for Response: If true, will leave socket open and store socket in a transaction attribute ‘com.pilotfish.eip.socket.CurrentSocket’.
3. Scenario – This tab allows you to configure the protocol that the Listener uses to accept data.
