    4. Sending an event to a local destination is equivalent to asserting it to the working memory.


  2. An event was defined with Time to Live equal to 10 minutes. An instance of that event arrived from a JMS destination configured with EXPLICIT_CLIENT_ACKNOWLEDGE mode and was consumed in the preprocessor. When will the JMS message corresponding to this event be acknowledged?

    1. rule actions section
    2. preprocessor body
    3. channel destination
    4. rule function body
    5. rule conditions section


  4. What is the effect of using the Agent.<AgentClassName>.checkDuplicates property at the agent class level?
    1. applies to all <AgentClassName> agents in the cluster
    2. applies to any <AgentClassName> agents deployed in the specified Processing Unit
    3. applies to any <AgentClassName> agents used in any Processing Unit
    4. applies to any <AgentClassName> agents in the project


  5. When will a conflict resolution cycle begin?
    1. when an external action causes changes to the RETE network
    2. when a rule action agenda is built or refreshed
    3. when a rule action is executed (or the agenda is empty)
    4. when a run to completion cycle has ended


  6. Which two statements are true about TIBCO BusinessEvents agents? (Choose two.)
    1. Multiple Inference agents can be run in a single Processing Unit.
    2. Inference agents and Cache agents can co-exist in a Processing Unit.
    3. A Processing Unit containing a Cache agent acts as a cache server.
    4. A rule in one Processing Unit cannot trigger a rule in a different Processing Unit.


  7. Which two statements are true about a site topology file? (Choose two.)
    1. It contains deployment information, mapping Processing Units to machines.
    2. It contains deployment information, such as JVM parameters and thread settings.
    3. It can only be edited in TIBCO BusinessEvents Studio.
    4. It can be edited in TIBCO BusinessEvents Studio or a Text Editor.


  8. Event A and Event B are in scope. Event A has property ZZ and Event B has property YY. Both properties belong to the same data type. Using Decision Manager, you drag property ZZ to a condition column. For a new rule, you specify a value of b.YY in its cell. What is the intended action?
    1. to compare the value of property ZZ with the value of property YY
    2. to set the property YY to the value of ZZ
    3. to set the property of ZZ to the value of YY
    4. to overwrite the property ZZ with property YY


  9. Which two methods are used to create and update metrics in TIBCO BusinessEvents Views? (Choose two.)
    1. compute() function
    2. create() and update() functions
    3. XSLT mapper
    4. XPath mapper


  10. Which two statements are true about transitions in a State Model? (Choose two.)
    1. When a transition crosses the boundary of one or more nested states, the entry or exit actions of those states are executed.
    2. When a transition crosses the boundary of one or more nested states, only exit actions of those states are executed./li>
    3. Composite states can optionally use boundary transitions but Concurrent states must use them./li>
    4. Concurrent states can optionally use boundary transitions but Composite states must use them.
