Typographical Conventions
The following typographical conventions are used in this manual.
Table 1 General Typographical Conventions
Convention
Use
ENV_NAME
TIBCO products are installed into an installation environment. A product
installed into an installation environment does not access components in other
installation environments. Incompatible products and multiple instances of the
same product must be installed into different installation environments.
TIBCO_HOME
An installation environment consists of the following properties:
•
Name Identifies the installation environment. This name is referenced in
documentation as ENV_NAME. On Microsoft Windows, the name is
appended to the name of Windows services created by the installer and is a
component of the path to the product shortcut in the Windows Start > All
Programs menu.
•
px_HOME
Path The folder into which the product is installed. This folder is referenced
in documentation as TIBCO_HOME.
TIBCO BusinessConnect PartnerExpress installs into a directory within a
TIBCO_HOME. This directory is referenced in documentation as px_HOME. The
default value of px_HOME depends on the operating system. For example on
Windows systems, the default value is
C:\tibco\bc\version_number\protocols\px.
code font
Code font identifies commands, code examples, filenames, pathnames, and
output displayed in a command window. For example:
Use MyCommand to start the foo process.
bold code
font
Bold code font is used in the following ways:
•
In procedures, to indicate what a user types. For example: Type admin.
•
In large code samples, to indicate the parts of the sample that are of
particular interest.
•
In command syntax, to indicate the default parameter for a command. For
example, if no parameter is specified, MyCommand is enabled:
MyCommand [enable | disable]

Table 1 General Typographical Conventions (Cont’d)
Convention
Use
italic font
Italic font is used in the following ways:
Key
combinations
•
To indicate a document title. For example: See TIBCO ActiveMatrix
BusinessWorks Concepts.
•
To introduce new terms For example: A portal page may contain several
portlets. Portlets are mini-applications that run in a portal.
•
To indicate a variable in a command or code syntax that you must replace.
For example: MyCommand PathName
Key name separated by a plus sign indicate keys pressed simultaneously. For
example: Ctrl+C.
Key names separated by a comma and space indicate keys pressed one after the
other. For example: Esc, Ctrl+Q.
The note icon indicates information that is of special interest or importance, for
example, an additional action required only in certain circumstances.
The tip icon indicates an idea that could be useful, for example, a way to apply
the information provided in the current section to achieve a specific result.
The warning icon indicates the potential for a damaging situation, for example,
data loss or corruption if certain steps are taken or not taken.
Table 2 Syntax Typographical Conventions
Convention
Use
[ ]
An optional item in a command or code syntax.
For example:
MyCommand [optional_parameter] required_parameter
|
A logical OR that separates multiple items of which only one may be chosen.
For example, you can select only one of the following parameters:
MyCommand para1 | param2 | param3
TIBCO PartnerExpress Release Notes
x
| Typographical Conventions
Table 2 Syntax Typographical Conventions (Cont’d)
Convention
Use
{ }
A logical group of items in a command. Other syntax notations may appear
within each logical group.
For example, the following command requires two parameters, which can be
either the pair param1 and param2, or the pair param3 and param4.
MyCommand {param1 param2} | {param3 param4}
In the next example, the command requires two parameters. The first parameter
can be either param1 or param2 and the second can be either param3 or param4:
MyCommand {param1 | param2} {param3 | param4}
In the next example, the command can accept either two or three parameters. The
first parameter must be param1. You can optionally include param2 as the second
parameter. And the last parameter is either param3 or param4.
MyCommand param1 [param2] {param3 | param4}
