Paths and Default Servers

Posted by smohr Jul 31, 2009

PI SDK, as everyone knows, will use the default server if you request a tag without specifying a server, e.g., sinusoid rather than \\server1\sinusoid.  Off the top of one's head, then, you would want PI WS to support the same behavior for pi: and pe: paths.


Or would you? PI WS is remote to the caller (well, usually).  For implementation reasons I won't go into here, there could be yet another hop involved.  Consequently, the user making the call might not know the default, or the default might have been changed without his knowledge.


What's your opinion?  Allow paths like pi:sinusoid to use the configured default server of the remote machine, or insist that any pi or pe path name the server?


Sample code coming soon

Posted by smohr Jul 29, 2009

The demo we gave today only scratched the surface of what is available in PI Web Services.  We will be posting sample code very soon.  Currently, we have code for .NET and Java (Eclipse + SWT + Axis).  We will also be posting directions for connecting to the CTP hosted web service so you can 'kick the tires' for yourself.  Be sure to check back frequently.
