Building an Application

An application is a collection of one or more modules and can be executed in the runtime.

Modules are packages containing one or more processes, shared resources, and metadata such as name, version, dependencies, and so on. Package names must be unique within an application. If there are two packages with the same name in an application, then you must either rename one of the packages or remove one of the packages from the application.
The New BusinessWorks Application wizard helps create an application. There are multiple ways to launch the wizard:
  • From the main menu, select File > New > BusinessWorks Resources and then select BusinessWorks Application.
  • From the Module Descriptors > Overview getting started area, click Create a BusinessWorks Application.
  • Right-click in the Project Explorer view and select New > BusinessWorks Application.

Specify the values for the following fields in the wizard:

  1. Project name: Name of the application.
    Note: The application name can contain only the following characters:
    • lower case alphabets (a-z)
    • numbers (0-9)
    • underscore ( _ )
  2. Use default location: Specifies the location on disk to store the application's data files. By default, this value is set to the workspace. To change, clear the check box and browse to select the location to be used.
  3. Version: Version of the application.
  4. Create Application Module: Selected by default to create an application module with the specified name. Clear the check box if you do not want to create an application module.
  5. Click Finish.


An application with the specified name is created and opened in the workbench. If the option to create an application module was selected, the application module with the specified name is also created.
