Testing Your Connector

After you use this SDK to build your Connector, you can use two Clay Tablet Technologies demo files to test it.

There is one demo file to test a Content Connector, and there is another demo file to test a Translation Connector. These files are part of the SDK for .NET package. Both demo files are built with Microsoft Visual Studio 2005.

  1. Unzip the relevant package (..\CTT DotNET SDK\Samples\*Sample_DotNet.zip) to a local folder, and then open them with Microsoft Visual Studio 2005.
  2. Contact Clay Tablet Technologies to create a test account so that you can run the demo projects. For details, see How to Contact Clay Tablet Support.
  3. Copy the source.xml and target.xml files, which Clay Tablet Technologies also provides, to a folder.
  4. In your configuration file (app.config or web.config), specify the account file locations. For example:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>

<configuration>

<appSettings>

<add key="CTT2_SourceAccount"

value="E:\...\ProducerSample\accounts\source.xml" />

<add key="CTT2_TargetAccount"

value="E:\...\ProducerSample\accounts\target.xml" />

<add key="CTT2_ConnectionContext_Folder"

value="E:\...\ProducerSample\data\" />

</appSettings>

</configuration>
