Using a Connection from Global Resources

Altova Global Resources represent a way to refer to files, folders, or databases so as to make these resources reusable, configurable and available across multiple Altova applications.


If you have already configured a database connection to be available as a global resource, you can reuse the connection at any time (even across different Altova applications).



To use a database connection from Global Resources:

1.Start the database connection wizard.
2.Click Global Resources. Any database connections previously configured as global resources are listed.


3.Select the database connection record, and click Connect.


Tip:To get additional information about each global resource, move the mouse cursor over the global resource.
