Creating the LLX_User user

Creating an empty MTS application

The first step in using the Component Services MC is to create a package. A package, which you can easily create, is a collection of components that run in the same process. You can either create an empty package and then add components, or you can install a pre-built package.

Packages define the boundaries for a server process running on a server computer. For example, if you group a sales component and a purchasing component in two different packages, these two components will run in separate processes with process isolation. Therefore, if one of the server processes terminates unexpectedly (such as a fatal application error), the other package can continue to execute in its separate process.

To create an empty MTS application:

1. Open the Component Services console.

2. Expand the Computers folder and then the COM+ Applications folder.

3. Right-click and select New and then Application from the menu.

4. Choose the Empty Application option.

5. Name the Component as shown below.


6. Browse to the LLX_USER user that you created in the steps above and enter a password.


7. When you are done, click Finish.
