System and method for program configuration
WO 2003060704 A3
Abstract
Embodiments of the present invention provide systems and methods for configuring programs substantially reduce or eliminate the disadvantages associated with previously-developed configuration systems and methods. More particularly, embodiments of the present invention provide a system and method for establishing the configuration parameters for a program through a multiple transaction conversation with configuration sources. The conversation can be directed, at least in part, by external logic at the configuration sources and can include a series of requests for configuration parameters and replies containing those parameters. The responses from configuration sources can also include additional request information that can be used by the program being configured to make additional requests for configuration parameters, thereby extending the conversation.
