APPLICATION sets the basic properties of the EASAP.
APPLICATION is a singleton object so there is only be one APPLICATION object on an EASAP Tree. The table below contains descriptions of the various parameters for the APPLICATION.
By default, all EASAPs are configured to open only in the Web Browser client. To override this default, you need to set the Allowed Clients: parameter to include EASA Client as part of its value. There are three possible settings for the Allowed Clients: parameter:
When both EASA Client and Web Browser are set to be allowed in the Allowed Clients: parameter, then users will determine which one to use by their Client Preference setting on the Preferences page.
Tip: If you select 'Web Browser' within the Allowed Clients: parameter, it is recommended that you set the ‘Display compatible for’ setting under the Options tab in EASAP Builder to ‘Web Browser’.
EASAPs By setting the Download Only: parameter to YES, you effectively transform your EASAP into a file storage and retrieval tool. These 'file download' EASAPs can be useful for storing such files as:
You need not do anything to the remaining three branches, USER INTERFACE, PROCESSES and OUPUT. Once you have completed the two steps described above, you can save your EASAP and then proceed to test, document and publish it. Once published, the EASAP will be presented like any other in the Application library. However, when a user opens it, they will NOT get a user interface of an application, instead they will see either:
