Running the Hyperview Service Controller

Running the Hyperview Service Controller

The Hyperview Service Controller can be found in the Programs folder of a DBDOC 11.3 or later installation. It is called HyperviewServiceController.exe. Running Hyperview Service Controller with full functionality requires administrator privileges.

Information-noshadow.png Note: Hyperview Services should be run on the same machine as the project files they are serving. The Hyperview Service Controller will need to be run on this same machine too. This may mean that you run Hyperview Service Controller on your build machine, where there is local access to project files, or it may mean that you run it on the machine with the shared folder that your project files are copied to.

When the Hyperview Service Controller is first started, it will look like this:

When services have been defined, they are listed in on the left.

You can create new services, modify existing services, start and stop services, and delete services. By default, once created, services will automatically restart when the machine they are on is rebooted, so you only need to start a service once. Each Hyperview Service will serve exactly one project file, which you must specify. You can, however, specify the project file name with wildcards in the same manner as on the command line, in order to server the most recent build of that project.

Information-noshadow.png Note: Even if you use "*" to denote the most recent build, the Hyperview Service must still be restarted in order to actually load the newest project file. It will not automatically detect that a new matching project file has appeared.
