Routing Table Syntax Guide

Routing tables are used by the single principal front ends to establish the network binding with the rest of the principals.

A routing table is an XML file with a ".rt" file extension and conforms to the following XML schema:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<xs:schema xmlns:xs="">
  <xs:element name="RoutingTable">
        <xs:element name="Principal" minOccurs="0" maxOccurs="unbounded">
            <xs:attribute name="name" type="xs:string" />
            <xs:attribute name="address" type="xs:string" />
      <xs:attribute name="me" type="xs:string" />
      <xs:attribute name="address" type="xs:string" />

For instance:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>
<RoutingTable me="org1" address="http://localhost:55330/Dkal/PrincipalService">
  <Principal name="site1" address="" />
  <Principal name="site2" address="" />
Here the routing table specifies that:
  • The current principal is named org1
  • The current principal listens for incoming communication at http://localhost:55330/Dkal/PrincipalService
  • There is another principal called site1 that listens for incoming communications at
  • There is another principal called site2 that listens for incoming communications at
