Instead of configuring inputs, outputs and lookups in one inputs.conf file, in DB Connect 3, inputs, outputs and lookups are configured in discrete files db_inputs.conf, db_outputs.conf and db_lookups.conf. This increases configurability and performance.

Note: Modifying inputs.conf file stanzas outside of the DB Connect app, such as in the search app or manager context, is not supported.

# On Microsoft Windows systems, a path is absolute if its prefix is a drive specifier followed by "\\", or if its prefix is "\\\\".
