EBS Bursting 101 from NZ

Gareth from down under has come up trumps again with a great tutorial on bursting in EBS. I made some rash promises at OAUG to provide more information/help on EBS Bursting - why re-invent the wheel when Gareth is already rolling.

Check out his entry a great reference. Issues section duly noted Gareth :0)

    Hi Tim
    Great Site.
    I have successfully used Gareth's example to implement Bursting through email.
    I am currently working on Bursting concept in XML.
    I have succesfully created the control file and got the email to work.
    However I am not able to get Fax functionality to work at all.
    My Unix guy has installed CUPS and he is able to fax from the cups server to the fax machine but when I submit the concurrent request nothing happens with the fax. There is no activity at all.
    here is the fax section from control file without spaces:
    < (space) xapi : fax server="http://cfdcupsaa:631/printers/efax" (space) >
    < (space) xapi:number id="FAX1" (space) > ${FAX_NUMBER} < (space) /xapi:number (space) >
    < (space) /xapi:fax (space) >
    We were able to fax directly from the fax server to a fax machine.
    We also installed the cupserver on the instance from which we run concurrent request and ran the lp print command and it faxes fine from that instance too.
    But when I run the concurrent request, email is sent but there is no fax recieved on the fax machine.
    As mentioned above I have shown the syntax I used for fax in the control file.
    In the rdf , I have defined a user parameter , fax_number and use select :p_fax_number from dual
    In the concurrent program define I have defined the parameter fax_number with token p_fax_number.
    So control file , rdf and conc. prog parameters are taken care of. Is there anything I am missing.
    Tim can you please throw some light on this issue.
    Thanks in Advance.
