FOREIGN SERVER OPTIONS vs FOREIGN STREAM OPTIONS

Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page

A foreign stream can inherit options from its foreign server. In this way, you can create a foreign server with common options and use it for multiple foreign streams, each of which would have just the specific options needed for its variant.

For example, you could configure a foreign server for FileWriter that serves as an XML writer with default naming convention and rotation settings, then have multiple foreign streams which vary by target filenames, rotation frequency, and so on.
