DTE030 – Modify the Employees Application

Complete this exercise if you are deploying a client server application or deploying a standalone Windows application. The changes to the Employee's Application are exactly the same for both deployments.


To make a simple change to the Employees Application which will require a Patch to be created to update the deployed application.

The real fields for start date and terminate date (STARTDTER and TERMDATER) will be removed from the application. These numeric dates have virtual fields defined over them, to transform to and from a DDMMYY (or MMDDYY) format after read and before write. The real date fields are not directly used by the application.

To achieve these objectives you must complete the following:

Step 1. Remove Real Start and Terminate Dates from the Editor

Step 2. Modify the Data Component (copy of II_DATA)

Step 3. Modify the Store Component (copy of II_STORE)

Step 4. Modify the Browser Component (copy of II_BRWSR)

Step 5. Re-test the Employees Application
