About This Release

Using the GRAccess Toolkit, you can write programs that automate the configuration of local and remote ArchestrA® Galaxies. The Galaxy configuration is exposed to .NET and COM clients through a programmable object model called GRAccess. This release provides the ability to browse the ArchestrA security model and incorporate this information in external applications.

The GRAccess Toolkit includes:

  • All support files, necessary for interfacing with your component, such as .dll files, type libraries, and interop files.
  • Working examples in several programming languages.
  • User documentation.

We recommend that you use C# as the programming language when using the GRAccess Toolkit. GRAccess also works with other COM or .NET programming languages, such as VB6, C++, and VB.NET.

The GRAccess Toolkit provides:

  • A .NET primary interop assembly for use in Microsoft .NET languages.
  • A COM type library that can be used in VB6 or other COM clients.

The following functionalities have been added:

  • The GRAccess Toolkit 2014 (version 4.0) now supports VS 2010 SP1, 2012 Update 1 or later, and 2013.

Resolved Issues

Following are Resolved Issues in GRAccess 2014.

L00108399: When saving an object ("myudax0" in this example) that has a UDA with input extension created using GRAccess with the buffered enabled, the follow error message is displayed: Buffered enabled UDA 'myudax0' does not have an input source.

As a workaround, add the extension in GRAccess with type "inputextension" instead of "InputExtension".
