Hello, Large python scripts when embeded in a toolbox with a password take to long to extract and run.  In order to get around that I want to make an embedded password protected module of the part of the code that I want to protect.

Here is the sample that I have been testing.

Script1A is embedded in the toolbox but not password protected

 

SCRIPT1A

# import ArcGis Geoprocessing module

import arcpy

import os

relPath = os.path.dirname(__file__)

arcpy.AddMessage(relPath)

toolPath = relPath + r"\TestModulesEmbed.tbx"

arcpy.AddMessage(toolPath)

arcpy.AddMessage(". . . Starting Script1A")

# The tool is identified by the toolname and the toolbox alias

# Import the custom toolbox

arcpy.ImportToolbox(toolPath)

# Run the tool

arcpy.Script1B_TestModules

arcpy.TestModules.Script1B

 

Script1B is embedded (imported) into the toolbox and also password protected

SCRIPT1B

# import ArcGis Geoprocessing module

import arcpy

import os

arcpy.AddMessage(". . . Script1B has been called")

def printmessage():

  arcpy.AddMessage(". . . Starting Script1B")

 

This is the result when running the code:

Executing: Script1A

Start Time: Sat Aug 06 09:52:10 2016

Running script Script1A...

C:\Data\NewContract\MyWork

C:\Data\NewContract\MyWork\TestModulesEmbed.tbx

. . . Starting Script1A

Completed script Script1A...

Succeeded at Sat Aug 06 09:52:10 2016 (Elapsed Time: 0.08 seconds)

 

Ideas of how to make this work will be appreciated.  I would like to protect the portion of the

script that accesses Oracle.

 

Thanks,

Dan
