You can execute a WebFOCUS Maintain procedure from any of the following:
To execute a WebFOCUS Maintain procedure that has not been compiled (with either an .mnt or .fex extension, or MAINTAIN or FOCEXEC file type or ddname), use the following syntax
MNTCON EX [appname/]procname [-v "parm1" , ... "parmn"]
To execute a WebFOCUS Maintain procedure that has been compiled (with either a .fcm extension or FOCCOMP file type or ddname), use the following syntax
MNTCON RUN [appname/]procname [-v "parm1" , ... "parmn"]
Is the directory name on the WebFOCUS Server where the Maintain procedure is located (optional).
Is the name of a Maintain procedure.
Is the flag that indicates parameters will be passed to the Maintain procedure (optional).
Can be either positional parameters or parm="value" keyword parameters. Parameter types can be mixed within the same MNTCON EX or MNTCON RUN command line. The maximum number of parameters you can pass is 128. You should separate all parameters using commas. You should enclose values containing spaces or commas in single or double quotes. Use with Sys_mgr functions (Sys_Mgr.Get_NameParm, Sys.Mgr.Get_InputParams_Count and Sys_Mgr.Get_PositionParm) to retrieve the values. For more information, see MNTCON EX, MNTCON RUN, and SYS_MGR in the Command Reference in the Maintain Language Reference manual.
You can use the Developer Studio HTML Layout Tool to easily create your own launch form for your WebFOCUS Maintain applications by selecting the desired .mnt or .fcm file from the list of external procedures in the Create a Hyperlink dialog. For more information, see the Creating Reporting Applications with Developer Studio manual.
