Developer Studio Installation and Configuration Steps
The steps to install and configure Developer Studio
vary depending on how you plan to develop applications.
Local Processing. Install
Developer Studio on the machine of each developer, then ensure that
a web or application server is configured on each machine. To access
data, configure the local WebFOCUS Reporting Server. Developers
will develop applications and run reports on their machines.
Remote Processing. Install
Developer Studio on the machine of each developer, then set up a
connection from each Developer Studio machine to a WebFOCUS environment
installed somewhere on your network. To access data, configure the
WebFOCUS Reporting Server in the WebFOCUS environment. A web or application
server is not needed on the Developer Studio machines because developers connect
to environments running elsewhere to develop applications and run reports.
Network Installation. Install
Developer Studio on one shared machine. Developers will run Developer
Studio from their desktop by accessing the files installed on the
shared machine over the network. You must set up a connection from
Developer Studio on the shared machine to a WebFOCUS environment.
To access data, configure the WebFOCUS Reporting Server in the WebFOCUS
environment. A special license code is needed for a network installation.
Installation on a WebFOCUS Machine. Install
Developer Studio after WebFOCUS is installed and configured. Developer
Studio connects to the WebFOCUS environment that is already installed
or optionally Developer Studio can be configured to have its own
Installation and Configuration Steps
Perform the following steps to install and configure
- Ensure all requirements
are met (see Installing Developer Studio).
- Run the Developer
Studio installation (see Installing Developer Studio).
- Ensure a web
or application server is configured either locally or remote.
- For local processing,
verify the automatic web or application server configuration (see Installing Developer Studio) or manually configure a web or application
server (see Configuring the Web Server or Application Server).
- For remote processing
or network installations, ensure a WebFOCUS environment has been
configured somewhere on your network. See the WebFOCUS and
ReportCaster Installation and Configuration manual for your
platform to install WebFOCUS.
- Start Developer
- Set up a connection
to a WebFOCUS environment.
- For local processing
and installation on a WebFOCUS machine, this should occur automatically
if the web server is configured. In some environments, you may need
to specify the web server port to set up the connection. You can
also create connections to additional WebFOCUS environments running
on your network.
- For remote processing
or network installations, set up connections to WebFOCUS environments
and specify the default environment to use for development.
- Configure data
adapters and metadata to report on your data through the WebFOCUS
Reporting Server (see the Developer Studio Application Development Getting
Started manual). For remote processing and network installations,
you use the adapters and metadata of the remote environment.
- For network
installations, configure access from developer desktops to the shared machine
where you installed Developer Studio (see Configuring a Network Installation).
