ILINX Capture and Content Store Configuration on separate ADFS server

When you install ILINX Content Store or ILINX Capture, generally it is assumed you install the ADFS (Active Directory Federation Services) authentication provider and the ILINX Application on the same server.  However, in the case that you are already using ADFS on another server for authentication, it is possible to use that separate instance of ADFS.

Keeping a Batch a Batch After Advanced Capture Processing

I ran into an interesting challenge with a customer and thought it might be something of interest to others. The challenge was in creating a way to have an entire batch of documents go through Advanced Capture processing and be returned to the input software, in this case ILINX Capture, as a single batch upon export.

ADF 11g: Passing Information to Bind Variables

For the past year, I’ve been working with a customer on a large Oracle BPM project.  As part of the project there are a couple forms written using Oracle’s Application Development Framework (ADF.) I’d like to do a small series on this blog of useful techniques that have helped me with a successful implementation in a large scale production environment. Today, we’ll be talking about how to pass information from the ADF binding layer to a named parameter that is setup on a view object in the model layer.  This comes up pretty often and there are some neat things you can do using the technique.

Let’s take a look at our view object first.

The query for the GetEmployeesInDepartment view object.

The query for the GetEmployeesInDepartment view object.

For this discussion we are using the HR sample schema that comes with an Oracle database. As you can see this view object uses a query that has a single bind variable that represents a department id. Its result set will be all the employees which belong to the supplied department. Our use case is going to be a table that will display employee information based on the department selected in a drop down list. There are many ways to do this type of thing in ADF and this isn’t necessarily the best use case for it but it has the advantage of being simple to follow and explain. We will talk a bit about some other uses for this technique later on. Continue reading

Database Lookups Made Easy

Database lookups are easy with ILINX® Content Store.  Recently I configured a few and thought I would share some of the features.  I am assuming that you are somewhat familiar with database lookups in general, so this is not a step-by-step but just to point out some cool features.

Here is the application that we need a lookup for and we are going to base it off the SSN field.  We will need to click edit on the field and enable/configure the lookup

Fill in all the information to make the connection.  Continue reading

KTM TDS Model Building

Are you tired of separator sheets?  Tired of wasted paper and countless hours of flipping through pages and inserting a barcode sheet at the start of a new document just to take it out after the batch is scanned or leave it in the batch and have more paper to store?  Why not have the computer do the work for you?  That’s the idea behind the Project Planner module in KTM.  There is a standard separation functionality built into KTM that works very well on structured and semi-structured documents but when you have more complex separation rules the Project Planner component of KTM is what you need.

Uploading Large Files with ILINX Capture and IIS

From time to time I receive questions about large file uploads with ILINX Capture. ILINX Capture can upload files of any size. The limitation is within Internet Information Services(IIS) and or the amount of memory installed in the web server. This is not only true for ILINX Capture, but and ASP or ASP.Net application.
