Installation and Configuration Steps

Perform the following steps to install and configure Developer Studio:

  1. Ensure all requirements are met (see Installing Developer Studio).
  2. Run the Developer Studio installation (see Installing Developer Studio).
  3. 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.
  4. Start Developer Studio.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. For network installations, configure access from developer desktops to the shared machine where you installed Developer Studio (see Configuring a Network Installation).
