SAS/CONNECT User's Guide


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.
