Example column populator configurations

Suggest edit Updated on May 11, 2022

The system uses pattern inheritance, defined by segments of the class name ending in a hyphen, to map classes to tables when no more specific Database Table instance is defined. For example, if (through a Database Table instance) class MyCo-Finance-Loans maps to a table named Loans, then classes such as MyCo-Finance-Loans-Defaulted are also mapped to Loans.

Settings for the Column Populator utility are entered in the prpcServiceUtils.properties or prpcUtils.properties file. This example shows several ways to configure the file depending on the data that you want to process.

For example, a system contains the following classes.

Data-Insurance-
Data-Insurance-Auto-
Data-Insurance-Auto-Claims
Data-Insurance-Auto-Claims-Accident
Data-Insurance-Auto-Claims-Accident-Atfault
Data-Insurance-Auto-Claims-Theft-
Data-Insurance-Home-
Data-Insurance-Home-Inspections
Data-Insurance-Life-

To process all auto:

  • Specify Data-Insurance-Auto for the expose.includedClasses (prpcServiceUtils) or expose.classes.included (prpcUtils) property.
  • Specify True for the expose.includeDescendents (prpcServiceUtils) or expose.included.descendent (prpcUtils) property.
  • Leave the other properties blank or with default values.

To process only atfault and inspections:

  • Specify Data-Insurance-Auto-Claims-Atfault and Data-Insurance-Home-Inspections for the expose.includedClasses (prpcServiceUtils) or expose.classes.included (prpcUtils) property, separated by a comma.
  • Specify True for the expose.includeDescendents (prpcServiceUtils) or expose.included.descendent (prpcUtils) property.
  • Leave the other properties blank or with default values.

To process all claims except theft:

  • Specify Data-Insurance-Auto-Claims in the expose.includedClasses (prpcServiceUtils) or expose.classes.included (prpcUtils) property.
  • Specify True for the expose.includeDescendents (prpcServiceUtils) or expose.included.descendent (prpcUtils) property.
  • Specify Data-Insurance-Auto-Claims-Theft- for the expose.excludedClasses (prpcServiceUtils) or expose.classes.excluded (prpcUtils) property.
  • Leave the other properties blank or with default values.
