The Repository tab is the focal point for all development. It shows all objects in the active partition and provides access to objects in the LANSA system. You use the Repository Tab to open and work with objects, such as your application fields, files, forms and reusable parts.
1. Resize the Repository tab to see more of the columns of information available.
Reminder: The columns that appear in the Repository tab will depend upon the type of Visual LANSA System that you have installed. The sample screens in this exercise are from a Slave Workstation LANSA installation.
The Repository tab might appear something like the following:
In this lesson, when you are asked to open an object, you will use the Repository tab to locate them.
2. Notice that on the Repository tab there are three main groups of objects listed:
3. Expand the Organizers. You will see a list of objects that you can use to group objects in the repository. For example, user defined Lists and Database Diagrams are stored in Organizers along with Frameworks and Groups.
4. Expand System Information. LANSA Administrators will use this information to configure the development environment. Many of the settings here (for example Partitions) reflect settings established on the LANSA for i system.
5. Expand the Active Partition(DEM). You will see a list of object type groups that you will use to create and build LANSA applications. A set of objects were imported into the repository when the partition was initialized.
