Where is the database and collection info located


Is Tamino the back-end database for storing asset metadata? If yes, how can I know the host name and the database name?

yes, default for 8.0 is http://:53305/CentraSite/CentraSite

Thanks for the reply Douglas.

We have a tool called Tamino Interactive Explorer (SAG).

I am using the following info to try to query the metadata repository:

database url = http://chazsoas01.amkor.com:53307/CentraSite
collection = CentraSite
xquery = copied from the xquery from Control’s advance search.

I am getting this error:

[i]HTTP Status 404 - /CentraSite/CentraSite

type Status report

message /CentraSite/CentraSite

description The requested resource (/CentraSite/CentraSite) is not available.
Apache Tomcat/5.5.28[/i]

Is it possible to use this tool to run xqueries against CentraSite DB?



Try with the following details:

The Server URL is: http://:53305/CentraSite
Database name is : CentraSite
Collection name is: CentraSite

If you still encounter the issues, then let us know which OS it is. With X-Plorer tool you can find out the details which you are looking for.


Hello Nag,

It worked when I used the 53305 port.

Hello Douglas,

I should have used the exact port that you suggested.

Thanks to both of you!


Can we use the external RDBMS for storing asset metadata? As per the documentation “CentraSite_Governance_Edition_Installation_and_Configuration_Guide_7_1_SP2.pdf”, CentraSite GE 7.1 supports mostly all RDBMS databases. And CentraSite GE uses HSQLDB for storing metadata.

However, CentraSite 8.0 uses Tamino as the backend database to store metadata. How can we configure this Tamino server? Is there any documentation available? Can we use any external RDBMS as the metadata Storage?Thank you

for CentraSite 8.0 and above, the backend data store is based on the Tamino XML Server. Configuration is done from System Management Hub (or batch tools). Documentation is in the CentraSite documentation, for example http://techcommunity.softwareag.com/ecosystem/documentation/webmethods/wmsuites/wmsuite8-2_ga/CentraSite/8-2-SP1_CentraSite/ag-smh/overview.htm

No, there is no provision for using an RDBMS. The XML Server is required.

Thank you Douglas :slight_smile:
