AppServer support in Progress Developer Studio for OpenEdge : Tasks : Working with AppServer projects : Creating an AppServer project
Creating an AppServer project
You have to create an AppServer project with the modules to build an application that can be deployed to PAS for OpenEdge or an AppServer.
To create a new project:
1. Select File > New > OpenEdge Project from the Progress Developer Studio for OpenEdge main menu bar or the Project Explorer view context (right-click) menu. The New OpenEdge Project wizard opens and displays the Create an OpenEdge Project page.
2. Type a name in the Project name field.
The root folder for the new project is created in your current Eclipse workspace, unless you specify a different location.
3. To choose a different location for the project, click and clear the Use default check box. Then either browse to, or enter the path to the desired location.
4. Select Server from the left section.
5. Select either PAS for OpenEdge or Classic option button to select the server type that you want to deploy the application to.
6. Select APSV as the transport.
7. Click Next.
8. Choose whether to use a project-specific AVM or a shared AVM.
9. Clear the Use TTY for runtime check box if you want to enable a facet for this project that substitutes another runtime environment.
10. Specify the OpenEdge AVM options and the project layout options (or retain the default settings) and click Next. The Define AppServer content module page opens.
11. Type the module name and the AppServer source folder name in the fields provided. If you have multiple projects and modules, give each module a unique name.
Note: The AppServer source folder is automatically included as part of the project when you finish the project creation. The folder is also added to the PROPATH for the project as a source directory, and the default r-code destination is the same as that of the project. You can later add any files manually to this source folder that must be published to the AppServer or to PAS for OpenEdge.
12. Select one or more servers that you want to publish the AppServer module to and click Next.
13. Specify the PROPATH to use for the project and click Next.
14. Specify the database connection(s) to use for the project and click Finish.
Note: You can add other module content resources through the AppServer module configuration property page after creating the project.
