Deploy to a Windows Server

This scenario demonstrates how to create and install a Windows Data/Application Server system and then execute a client application which connects to the Windows Server application. To do this, you need to create two Deployment Tool applications:

1.  One application, the one described here, is installed on the server and includes system variables, application files (including message files) and their OAMs. For a real application, this package would also include all server based functions which are part of the application.

2.  The second application, described in Deploy Client Server Applications, must be installed on each client and includes the client application's forms and reusable parts.

To create the Windows Server installation, you need to perform these steps:

DTE010 – Set Up the Deployment Tool

DTE015 – Create Client Server Application

DTE020 – Create Version 1 Package.
In this exercise, in Step 1. Add Routing Table to Application, you need to be aware you are specifying the routing entry to connect to your Windows Server application.

DTE025 – Install Version 1 Package

Exercises DTE015, DTE020 and DTE025 demonstrate how to define and install the client application. This client application will connect to the Windows server installation defined in exercise DTE095 – Create a Windows Server Installation.

Exercise DTE100 – Execute Client to a Windows Server then describes how to set up and run your client application against the Windows server installation.
