The DOMAIN server technology delivers protocol-independent messaging and eliminates
the requirement for licensing, configuring, and supporting multiple protocol
stacks in a given environment.
The DOMAIN server manages intercommunications in SAS/CONNECT
by providing four services:
- Collection Management
- separates queues into collections and is
responsible for starting the queue manager for processing individual messages.
- Queue management
- allocates the queues, maintains access information
for each queue, and administers the messages that belong to each queue.
- Agent scheduling
- is a client/server-based implementation
of a periodic job scheduler and can also provide on-demand execution.
- Protocol gateway
- allows message exchange between SAS sessions
that run in a network environment and use different network access methods.
A network is made up of one or more logical domains. A logical domain maps
a topological area according to the communications protocol or access method
that it supports.
