CHAPTER 2

Step 2: Identify and place the config file

In order to use the ADP Client Core Library, it is necessary to create a Consumer Application with ADP. When a Consumer Application is created, scopes are defined that determine which specific APIs the application has access to. Once the Consumer Application is created you can request an ADP Core Library configuration file.

The configuration file is a compressed file containing an application configuration file, and schema definitions for the APIs that the Consumer Application is allowed to use. This configuration bundle is used to configure the Core Library in order to access the APIs allowed by the Consumer Application.

Place the configuration file in a location that will be accessible to your application.

A readme file will accompany the configuration file. The readme file contains a listing of the available methods as well as the list of attributes each method supports or requires.
