The repository server handles read and write requests from TestArchitect Client, TestArchitect Controller, and third party applications.
In Windows it is a service, in Linux and Unix-based systems it is a daemon. (For the sake of conciseness, the term service is used for both cases from here on.) The TA Repository Server service is responsible for managing the TestArchitect repositories residing on its host machine. It handles repository-related read and write requests from TestArchitect Client and TestArchitect Controller applications on the same machine. It can also handle requests from third party applications that need access to repository data, such as HP Quality Center. It can be managed and monitored with the user program Repository Server Control Panel.
