Quick Start

Contact Zone is the tool with which you design and test data verification processes. The components within Contact Zone execute the processes designed with Contact Zone, and are executed from a terminal window.

Repository and Files

In Contact Zone you build Jobs and Transformations. There are two methods to save them:

  • Database repository
  • Files

If you choose the database repository method, the repository must be created the first time you execute Contact Zone. If you choose the files method the Jobs are saved with the .kjb extension and the Transformations are saved with the .ktr extension. In this quick start we will work with the files method.

Starting Contact Zone

Start Contact Zone by executing ContactZone.bat within the install folder. As soon as Contact Zone starts, a dialog window will appear asking for the repository connection data. Click the Cancel button.

Following this you will see a tip window. Close this. Now you will be in the main Contact Zone interface. Go to the Tools menu and click Options.... A window will open that enables you to change various general and visual characteristics. If anything is changed, it will be necessary to restart Contact Zone in order to see the changes applied.
