The path to the directory that contains the optimized codings files. This parameter is required for a system that has Type set to Factbank.

The coding files contain a list of entities and properties that map to a particular code. HPE Answer Server uses coding maps to ensure that equivalent forms of an entity match the same results. For example, you can map President of the United States and POTUS to the same code, so that the correct answer can be retrieved regardless of how the user specifies it in the question.

CodingsDatPath specifies the directory that HPE Answer Server uses to store the optimized .dat file versions of the coding files. HPE Answer Server generates these files from the .txt files when it starts up to improve the performance of reading the coding files.

For more information about how to create the coding files for your fact bank, refer to the HPE Answer Server Administration Guide.
