Export and Connect - both features share the same fields/interface for database connection. Generally speaking, user can maintain two modes for Event Journal export : one-at-a-time export and real-time export modes. Export is a one-at-a-time transaction. Connect establishes and maintains real-time connection, so there are two replicas of Event Journal at a time: local and remote.
