Maximo Important Questions1

Maximo Important Questions1

1.A labor can have multiple qualifications that can be renewed or extended. Some of these qualifications expire after a period of time. What is created to automatically expire these qualifications?
   Escalations

2.What are the benefits of Maximo, versus other similar systems?
   Scalable. No matter what size you are now, it can handle future expansion
3. What is MBO and MBO Set?
   MBO represents record in the table where as MBO Set represents a table in the data base. These   MBO’s carries the data.
4. How can you validate a text field?
  Using a MBO Validate class you can validate a text field. In the Database configuration in the attributes tab you can specify a validate class name.
5. Where you will mention the Cron task logic? Explain for 10 instances?
  You have to specify the Cron task logic in java class. Suppose for the escalation Cron task you may define the login in  psdi.app.escalation.engine.EscalationCronTask Class. Now if there are 10 Escalation Cron tasks instances are running that means there will be 10 java objects of EscalationCronTask class.
6. What is use of MaxObject, MaxAttribute, and MaxPresentation?
MaxObject: In this table the actual definition of the MBO is stored.
MaxAttribute:  Describes all the attributes like data type of the attribute, its length, is it persistent or not, does it have any validation class attached to it.
MaxPresentation: Actual presentation XML of any application is stored.
7. What are system properties?
   We will use System Properties application to manage system properties and the values of the system properties that various components use.
8. Can we have multiple system properties with the same name and values? Can we have multiple values? Can we have a default value?
We can’t have multiple system properties with the same name, but we can have system properties with the same values. We can have multiple values for system properties. For Example for the attachments we can have multiple values like .txt,.html.
9. What are the Global properties data types?
   Integer, Yes or No , ALN
10.   What are the instance properties in System Properties?
  An instance property is defined and associated with a specific system server.
For example, you can configure the system property, mxe.crontask.donotrun, to be an instance-specific property. To perform this configuration, access the System Properties application. In the Instance Properties table window, associate the mxe.crontask.donotrun system property with a specific server (for example, MXServer1) and a value applicable only to that server (for example, a value of BBCron). As a result, the Bulletin Board cron task (BBCron) does not run on MXServer1; however, BBCron can run in another system instance, such as MXServer2.
