Startup tab
The Startup tab in the Progress OpenEdge AppServer, Progress OpenEdge WebSpeed, Progress Application Server for OpenEdge, and ABLUnit sections of the Configurations wizard specifies options for starting the AppServer and WebSpeed instances used by the launch configuration.
The following controls are available on the Startup tab:
Name (accessible from all tabs)
(Required) Specifies the name of the launch configuration, which appears on menus and in the left pane of the Configurations wizard.
Working directory
Specifies the directory in which the AVM starts when the configuration runs. By default, the value is set to the OpenEdge installation working directory. If you created the launch configuration by using the New Server wizard, the value you set for the AppServer or WebSpeed broker is used.
Click Workspace, File System, or Variables to specify a location by browsing or using a variable.
For remote AppServer or WebSpeed launch configurations, wherever a path is expected, the File System or the Workspace options are disabled. There is no support for remote host directory browsing. When you select Apply or OK, the Debugger validates the specified properties but does not update them to the broker until the broker is started.
