    10. Question 10. Describe The Meaning Of Atg Repository?

      Answer :

      Using ATG Dynamo, this is the process for entering into a Database using programs while keeping the actual application logic apart from the Database.

    11. Question 11. How To Register A Repository With The Dynamo??

      Answer :

      Create “/config/atg/registry/” file and append our repository file (XML )name to the “initialRepositories” property

      Eg: initialRepositories+= /myModule/mySampleRepository

    12. Question 12. What Is Config Layering?

      Answer :

      Properties set in later entries in the CONFIGPATH override earlier entries. By adding a entry to the config path you can customize any components in the system without losing the original configuration information.You can have a global configuration common to all machines then have machine specific information in the last layer.

    13. Question 13. What Is A Context Root?

      Answer :

      Is a URL mounting point of the web application. It decides what URL site site visitors will enter to get to the site.

    14. Question 14. Differentiate Global,request & Session Scopes?

      Answer :

      Global: components are accessible from all other components.Not available across ATG servers, each server has its own copy of global scoped component.

      Session: means every user of the application gets a separate copy of the component, and component exists for duration of the user’s session.

      Request : A component is called in for returning the values of a search, so each time a search is triggered an object instantiation happens and its gone when the result page is closed.Which means the scope of the search component is request.

      Eg:-formhandlers normally have a request scope.

    15. Question 15. How A Component Is Instantiated ?

      Answer :

      One can start or stop components manually using an ACC.We can instruct nucleus to start a component during server startup, this is done by modifying the “” file.Add the component name to the “initialServices” property inside the file.

    16. Question 16. What Is Manifest File?

      Answer :

      Applications often depend on other modules, these dependencies are declared in this file.The file name is MANIFEST.MF and resides in the META_INF directory. It specifies ATG-Class-Path,ATG-Required, ATG-Config-Path etc

    17. Question 17. What Is Atg Nucleus?

      Answer :

      Nucleus is a ATG container for components. It creates and initializes component instances on request. It manages the components scope. It locates the properties file for the component and through that it reaches the class file of the component. Nucleus components are Java Objects each with an associated .properties file which store configuration values.

    18. Question 18. What Are Different Modes Caching?

      Answer :

      Caching modes are set at the item descriptor level, through the <item-descriptor> tag’s cache-mode attribute. The default caching mode is simple caching. To set a different caching mode on an item descriptor, set cache-mode to one of the following values: 

      • simple
      • locked
      • distributed (distributed TCP caching)
