FTS Index

FTSIndex is an application that will log into your chosen server and list for you all of the forms and fields that have FTS Index option set.

FTSIndex can be run either from the Windows GUI, or from the command line. If run from the GUI you simply configure your server in the FTSIndex.properties file and double click on the jar file, this will produce an output of the results into a file in the same folder

Alternatively you can provide the jar with command line parameters

Below are all of the parameters that are accepted for use

java -jar APLFTSIndex.jar -x <server> -u <user> [-c <configFile> -p <password> -t <TCPPort> -crf -rf <removeFile>]

All command line parameters are optional if your config file is named the default and all options are in the config file, required are only required on one of the two places.

-x: This is the server to connect to
-u: User used to connect to the servers
-c: Config file to use, if undefined it looks at APLFTSIndex.properties file
-p: Password of the user being used to connect
-t: TCPPort to connect to server, uses port mapper if undefined
-crf: Auto create a remove file from the output of the search
-rf: File that you want process for Index Removal

Version History

-Updated the tool to not only show you the form name and type, but also the schemaID. This is useful because the FTS Index puts the indexes for that form in a folder by the name of the schemaID
-Converted from using my own logging methods to using log4j to make things easier
-Removed verbose option and changed it to changing the logging level of the program
