This Lightning talk describes an interesting use case for the notification service of FME Server. Food trucks that deliver fresh meals to business districts drive the same routes every day but arrive at their defined stops at different times. By sending the trucks GPS position to FME Sever via a mobile phone, notifications can be send to all subscribers of a pre-defined FME Server service once the truck enters a specific area. The notification message includes the daily menu information or special offerings of the food truck.
In many implementations of FME Server the workflow consists of processing that is independent. The queue manages the incoming requests under the assumption that no two request and therefore no tow processes are dependent. This allows for the efficient allocation of jobs to the engines. This talk will discuss how FME Server was extended to manage pools of dependent processes where downstream pools are dependent on upstream pools having completed. Through the correct use of metadata, job submitters and auditing triggers the resulting extension supported interdependent process requests extremely efficiently .
