Before you start to author a custom web application (or EASAP), get to know your Users’ needs and processes. Keep in mind that simpler is usually better. Your EASAP should enable Users to execute a given task as easily as possible.
First check with your Administrator that you have a user ID with Author privileges.
The URL has the following structure:
where <Domain_Name> is the computer name or domain name of your EASA Server (often its localhost). You can save the link as a favorite in the browser.
Note: for versions prior to EASA 5.2: If this is the first time you have built an EASAP, you will need to install the EASA Client by clicking on the EASA Client link at the bottom of the page. When done, use your browser’s Back button to return
You should now see the New Application wizard, which opens any time we edit an EASAP called ‘New EASAP’. It allows us to set some PROPERTIES for our EASAP. The title can be anything you like.
Note: Optionally, you can select an Image and a brief Description of your choice, both of which will be visible to a User once you publish your EASAP.
We now have some options on how we wish to define the user interface of our new EASAP.
When Users start using your EASAP, their 'user experience' will be determined by the content you create. Tutorials listed above will show you how to use EASAP Builder to create sophisticated applications with GUI objects such as data entry boxes, choice lists, pull down menus, and tables. You will be able to build applications that interact with databases, run batch processes, and offer reporting functions.
There are multiple options to proceed with the creation of the EASAP:
Note: If the Revision buttons are not present, but you do see an Unpublish button, then the EASAP is already published.
