The attribute write caching feature enables you to store and write attribute data from the Design Tool before deploying your model to a Host Integrator Server. Testing this feature is a helpful debugging tool that allows you to execute an attribute write test from within the Design Tool that simulates the capabilities of the SetAttributes method provided with the Verastream Connector APIs. This simulation is accomplished in the Design Tool by using UpdateAttribute and UpdateAttributes commands in conjunction with attribute input commands in operations. By simulating these calls, you can accurately test these methods with the model before using the connectors to create a client application.
In order for the attribute write caching feature to work properly, follow these steps:
Note: When the Cache all attribute writes check box is selected, the Design Tool will not write attributes to the terminal screen unless an UpdateAttributes command or a series of UpdateAttribute commands is included in the attribute input operation.
To execute a write attribute test:
