Task3000 Workstation

Task designer uses Task3000 Workstation as main developers tool and is used to generate the Task3000 Submitter menu and/or submit the task(s). Task3000 Submitter menu is used to enter and control the parameters of the user task.  Task3000 Submitter menu is generated with Task3000 Workstation Environment Fields menu and Task3000 Environment Settings menu.

Task3000 Personal Server is used to execute the submitted task on the same machine or Task3000 Server is needed to execute the task on the same machine or different dedicated server.

Task is basic unit of the execution and is executed by the Task3000 Server/ Task3000 Personal server. It can contain one or more steps. Steps are executed sequentially.

Every task has:

  1. General parameters, like task name, execution time, number and conditions for repetition of the task, task dependency etc.

  2. Step parameters, like command to execute, working directory, step parameters, conditions to execute the step (FileRC) etc.

Main benefits of the Task3000 Workstation:

  1. Task3000 Workstation is not only tool for developing the tasks but have also the functionality of the:

    1. Microsoft Explorer/Internet Explorer as by reusing Microsoft WebBrowser technology

    2. Built-in text Editor (supports rtf also)

    3. Tool for browsing the task execution and tool for browsing the results of the task execution

  2. User can develop the tasks by using menus, which guides him to quickly build the tasks with several steps.

  3. Task execution can be monitored and even task console window on the server is visible during execution.

  4. Screenshots of the task console window are captured automatically and saved to the file. Task console window size can be defined for each step execution separately.

  5. Reports are stored on the Task3000 Server queue and the results of the tasks execution can be viewed for several task executions, for different tasks and on different servers.

  6. Open recent list improve your productivity by storing the path to the last used documents. You can edit the most recent list.

  7. User can control the task execution on several Task3000 servers simultaneously.

  8. Task3000 Workstation FileRC menu enables you to generate the conditions, under which task will be executed. FileRC is basically automatic search engine on the files. Result of the search can determine the next step or even task execution.

  9. Normal Microsoft Windows Environment Variables (EV) are used to store user parameters and every program, which is able to read the EV can be controlled. Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications is highly recommended (built-in in all Microsoft Office products). User parameters can be easily written to the files and such file can be used to control the program execution (e. g. Command prompt: ECHO %variable% >file can be used). Global parameters valid for all task execution (every step) can be defined.

  10. Very simple but powerful scheduler enables you to run tasks on appropriate date/time. Nonworking days are easily excluded; repetitions of the tasks can be easily controlled during long period of time and all that with just one menu with several parameters.

Therefore Task3000 Workstation can be treated as fully working environment for very different tasks.
