Variable Associations Configuration
After you complete the basic configuration of a variable, configure the variable associations.
Variable associations make the variable values available to the user programs by including
these values in response files or properties files (see more details in 6.2.2, “Response file
(properties file)” on page 110).
There are four types of association:
CID response file association. The Configuration, Installation, and Distribution response
file format supported by DB2 applications.
ISMP response file association. The response file format for InstallShield MultiPlatform
ISS response file association. The response file format for InstallShield installations.
Properties association. Standard properties file format. Java-based user programs can
access the value of a variable through this type of association, using the support
Our application wrapper will be responsible for deploying and configuring the Trade6
application. This does not require an InstallShield or CID process, so we will use the simple
properties association only. This ensures that the variables we just defined get passed into
our user programs through the Trade.prop properties file.
