In this session, we perform the steps common to every new EASAP

A. Create a new EASAP

1. Login to EASA as an Author and create a new EASAP:

  • Obtain from the EASA Administrator a user ID with Author privileges (login and password are 'author' by default)
  • Open a browser window
  • Navigate to the EASA Server URL sent by the Administrator
  • The URL has the following structure: http://domain-name:80/easa/
    domain-name is the computer name or domain name of the EASA Server, often its localhost
    80 is the default port, and may be omitted

2. We start with a default, working EASAP which we modify in the EASAP Builder:

  • On the EASA Server web page select: EASA > Set Mode > Author
  • Enter an Author's login credentials
  • Select: EASA > Applications
  • Select: New
  • Click: Create
    …We have created a new EASAP
  • Click on the link: EASAP Builder
  • Download the file: atos.easa
  • Open the file

The New Application Wizard will appear:

3. The New Application Wizard opens when we create a new EASAP.

  • We are prompted for some basic info which can be changed later on in PROPERTIES
  • Set Title to: Stock Screener
  • Set the Category to ‘Training’
    An EASAP belongs to one (or more) Category, a User Group may access one (or more) Category of EASAP


Additional CATEGORY objects may be added to the Tree under: EASAP > PROPERTIES

  • Select an icon for 'Image', click the folder icon
  • In the local, unzipped *.zip archive from the last session, browse to: Stock.jpg
  • Write a brief description of the EASAP to be visible to Users once the EASAP is published
  • Click: Next

We have a few options on how we wish to define the user interface of a new EASAP.

4. Let's choose the 'Use EASAP Builder' option to build our EASAP manually.

  • Click Finish and the EASAP Builder will open:


B. Upload files to the EASAP

We need to upload the files that will be required by the EASAP.

These files are copied from a local machine to the EASA Server and stored in the development folder for the EASAP.

The development folder contains the single, centralized definition of the EASAP.

Once published an EASAP will be available across a number of Users, each running EASAP is a new instance started with default values.

  • In the Builder select the 'Files' tab just above the Tree
  • Click: Browse
  • Select the local folder where we saved the tutorial files
  • Select each of the following files by holding the CTRL key down and dragging the mouse
    Results.xls
    report_body.html
    EASAlogo.jpg
    read_StockData.txt
  • Click: Open
  • Click: Upload
  • Save the EASAP

The files will be added to the list of current files shown below the Browse and Upload buttons.
