Welcome to the third and last day of the Named Pipes seminar. Today we will get into the consumer portion of the framework. We will focus on getting a piece of information from the producer to the consumer and then moving some of that information into the Data Flow.
The basic layout of a consumer will be a self-contained entity. The theory is you build it to not only interact with the producer, but to work on that single unit of work that will be passed to it. Here is the basic layout of a consumer. All you need to do is encapsulate all of your work in a For Loop, which controls if you have work to do. To keep things neat, I wrap everything inside a SequenceContainer.
