When HookChildProcesses is set to True, OpenSpan integrates with any application/process that is spawned from the application entered in the StartPage (for web applications) or Path (for Windows applications). Usually you will want to use OpenSpan to integrate with these processes; however, in some cases a process or factory might be loaded that is irrelevant to your project. In these cases, you can specify in the OpenSpan project any processes and/or factories you want OpenSpan to ignore by using an Exclude function. This function is available as follows:
Through the ExcludeProcesses property for the adapter or factory
From the Windows or Java tab context menu options – Exclude Process by Name From.., and, Exclude Process by Command Line from…
To exclude a process for an application using the ExcludeProcesses property, do the following:
1. Highlight the application adapter in the Object Explorer.
2. Browse the ExcludeProcesses property in the Properties grid to open the TextMatchData Collection Editor.
3. In the TextMatchData Collection Editor, click the Add button. A new member is added and properties for the member display. Use the properties to set the exact text OpenSpan should use to identify the process you want to exclude.
4. In the Text property, enter the name of the process or the command line text for the application.
5. Use the IgnoreCase and Mode properties to further specify how OpenSpan matches the Text you entered with the name of the process. An example of a completed TextMatchData Collection Editor is shown below:
6. When you have finished adding processes to exclude, click OK.
To exclude a Factory for an application using the ExcludeProcesses property, repeat the same procedure as listed above for a process. The only difference is that you must highlight the Factory in the Object Explorer and use the ExcludeProcesses property for the Factory.
