C/C++ APIs

  • Click to show description dirupdat.exe – C/C++ sample program showing a simple example of setting up directory update entries.

    This C/C++ sample program demonstrates creating, configuring, and deleting Directory Update entries. A "Create Update Entry" interface is included, where the required options of an update entry are gathered. This code path calls Directory Update APIs to create the update entry, and an API to set the attributes of the update entry. A "Delete Update Entry" interface is also included. This code path calls the Directory Update APIs necessary to delete an update entry.

    It should be noted that the Directory Update APIs only set up the update entries to be used by the Directory Update application. The Directory Update APIs do not perform the file updates that result from the update entries. The Directory Update application performs the actual update function.

    For more detail on Directory Update, and package file support, read the IBM i Access for Windows User's Guide (that is installed on your PC when IBM i Access for Windows is installed).
