Location of software when installed

Because DBCAPTURE is such a small program it's often added to an existing computer at your facility.

If you are only using it for automated IN/OUT migration of files around_ in and out of your facility it can be run as a system tray program on any computer you desire (on one or several depending on how you want the tasks broken out).

In web publishing modes - the software is generally only installed on a single computer.

With web publishing, it's assumed the content is coming from another WireReady program such as NewsReady or ControlReady. DBCAPTURE monitors an "IN path" for web published files. Incoming jobs generally consist of a plain TEXT file, and a DAT file (which is also text based). These two files are generally generated by another WireReady product (such as NewsReady). This job may have originated on the same computer if the customer is running everything on a single computer, or the job may have originated from another computer on the if the customer is running WireReady software on multiple computers.

The text file consists of the plainly typed text the user made in the WireReady editor, and it includes references to any media objects or URL's they typed within their plain text. When a WireReady program makes the text file (because the user hit the WEB button) we include a simple text based header used to carry field information such as headline, author name, story tease, etc. The DAT file, which has the same name as the TXT file, includes job-based information such as the destination name on the web site and/or the action such as ADD, ADD UNIQUE, MODIFY, DELETE, etc.   

DBCAPTURE runs 24/7 periodically checking this IN path for jobs (there can be multiple IN paths it looks at if you have different groups of users who each have different options). When it sees a TXT and corresponding DAT file - it treats that as a web publishing task. It finds the destination name listed in the DBFOLDER.DAT file - which tells it where to publish to, how to login, how to process any embedded sound files, and the names of template files to use in order to encapsulate the plain text file to achieve the look and feel you desire on your web site.

DBFOLDER.DAT destination names can be chained together so that after processing the job files, it re-processes them additional times. This serves many purposes including the following. Let's say you want everything published to one site to go to another(s).    In this fashion, DBCAPTURE can take that same job and process it with different rules and different templates on a number of web sites. Or, let's say you're creating a blog, or a news story listing and you want one page to have just headlines and teases which point to the individual pages that carry each story. When someone clicks WEB and clicks NEWS - then DBcapture must process the submission twice. The first thing it does is add a unique page to the web site that carries the story. The second thing it does is it adds a headline to the referring page (perhaps with a tease, picture thumbnail, etc. (virtually anything is possible) and then links that headline to the story it just created. Perhaps it also updates a shorter listing of headlines that also exists on a main or home page.    In this fashion, one click to send content from a user can end up being multiple publish requests carried out by DBCAPTURE.
