Connecting to an ASAM ODS Data Source
Select Connection in the toolbar of the ASAM ODS Data Source window or in the context menu.
In the Connection dialog box, you can select an ASAM ODS data source to be displayed in the ASAM ODS Data Source window. The following settings are possible:
•No connection: No connection to an ASAM ODS data source is established.
•CORBA: Establishes a connection to an ASAM ODS server via a CORBA interface.
•ATF: Establishes a connection to an ASAM Transport Format (ATF) file.
•ATFX: Establishes a connection to an ASAM Transport Format in XML (ATFX) file.

The name of the machine on which the ASAM ODS server is located.
Determines the port.
Factory name and type
Each ASAM ODS server that is available in the network and registered with an ORB offers a so-called factory interface and thus enables clients to obtain general information about the server and to establish a connection with this server. The factory interface is uniquely described by name and type. Existing factory interfaces are automatically listed.
Determines the user of the ASAM ODS server.
Specifies the user password.
Read data source completely
Specifies whether the data source is read in completely or whether only the instance element specified via the ASAM path, including its subelements, is read in.
Determines the ASAM path of the instance element that is to be read (see Reading the Data Source Completely).
