What is paktotam? I've seen it running on enterprise server (AS/400) in subsystem JDEB7333. I suspect that it's for update package, but would like to confirm. Thanks.

My 5 cents worth:
When you build a server package OW builds .PAK files instead of .ddb and .xdb spec files on the deployment server. The PAK format is platform (enterpriser server) independent. It then transfers these PAK files to the server and paktotam unpacks the PAK files to .ddb .xdb spec files, also known as TAM files. Thus the name: PAK-TO-TAM.

Thanks, Gerd

close - but it really isn't as efficient as all that !

The PAK files are exactly that - packed TAM files that can be transferred between the deployment server and the Enterprise Server. The server then UN packs them using PAK-TO-TAM

If one remembers how we used to create full server packages - then you'll understand what the process is. First we built a full CLIENT package - then transferred them over to the server using TAMFTP. The PAK-TO-TAM just makes that a little faster (but not much) by compressing them prior to the transfer - and, of course, the PAK file is transferred using the JDENet process now.

Its interesting, though, that with the PAK process, the time it takes to build a full server package is almost for the same size GBRSpec file compared to the old method. It also is interesting that the .XDB files are no longer brought across in the package build process - hence the fact that a reindex occurs on the server during the package build, which can take forever !

Looking forward to meeting some of you at Focus btw !

this is the JDE specific Format. You need this e.g. for TAMFTP your DD-Items
to the Enterprise Server.

Kind regards

When you build a server-package, the specs for your enterprise-server are
build on the deployment-server and then transfered via paktotam to your
ES.
