Ricoh ProcessDirector workflows can be configured to send print jobs to other applications for additional
processing and then receive them back into the system. The other applications can
run either on the same server that holds the primary server or on a secondary server.
If your application provides a different interface for displaying information about
the Ricoh ProcessDirector system, or if it needs to extract information from Ricoh ProcessDirector to do more processing, you can use web services to request different kinds of information
and manage system objects.
The sample system_map.cfg found in /aiw/aiw1/samples/config/ (AIX and Linux) or C:\aiw\aiw1\samples\config\ (Windows) translates the file paths in JDF job tickets to the file paths of a mounted file
system. You can copy this file into the /aiw/aiw1/control_files/config/ (AIX and Linux) or C:\aiw\aiw1\control_files\config\ (Windows) directory and edit it as necessary.
Various parts of Ricoh ProcessDirector use the information in control files or control file templates to set and pass values
for different properties. You can copy the control files and control file templates that Ricoh ProcessDirector provides and modify them to meet the needs of the installation.
Ricoh ProcessDirector messages might refer to properties by their database names instead of the field names
that appear in property notebooks. Most of the database property names are similar
to the names in the property notebooks, but they are written in a different format.
