In-Depth Course Description
APPX Advanced Training Class
This class builds on the knowledge from the introductory class. The student builds a complete order entry application, using the latest features in Appx, including file level event points, database commits and rollbacks, PASS/RECEIVE, and more. The GUI Design Techniques course normally follows this one, and is a perfect complement to the skills you will learn in this class. In this course we will use Oracle to store our application data, and spend time discussing the advantages/disadvantages of using Oracle, as well as use some techniques to optimise APPX performance under an RDBMS. If you have ever considered moving your APPX data to an RDBMS, this is your chance to see what's involved.
APPX Application Design Fundamentals
This class is an introduction to APPX application Design for the programmer with little or no experience in APPX. Emphasis is placed on the APPX design structure of using frames and images to create a process. Students will receive an introduction to ILF coding and event points. Hands-on exercises walk the student through creation of a working APPX application using the various process types.
APPX GUI Design Techniques
The Java-based APPX Client brings a new way to look at APPX screen design and the latest release adds a new dimension of graphical design to both Inputs & Outputs. This class will cover design techniques using these new options, including features for adding images, icons, the drag and drop data palette, buttons, boxes, and more. You will work with the Order Entry system created in the Advanced Training Class. The combination of these two classes is an excellent way to learn all the new features, and is highly recommended!
APPX Tips and Techniques
This class is for those with an advanced knowledge of APPX application design. Seasoned APPX veterans will share tips and techniques they have picked up over the years. Learn how to use those ,RT and CALL commands. The subject matter of this class is flexible so attendees can address the topics most helpful to them.
Fast Track to APPX
For those of you who have converted from SPEED II to APPX. This class will cover the similarities and differences you will encounter as you transfer your SPEED II experience to maintaining and designing applications in APPX.
This class covers topics related to installing and running APPX on Unix and NT. Subjects covered include the use of the recovery utility, the APPX_PRINT script, setting up an APPX.ENV file, using FMS groups and APPX/NET, installing the APPX thin client, and much more.
Web Development with APPX
More and more businesses are entering the World Wide Web. APPX provides an easy way to interface your applications with the Internet. Learn how to make your current applications display on an HTML page and how to design new applications for interactive web access. This class assumes you have a knowledge of HTML and concentrates on integrating your application with HTML. You will also learn about the ODBC interface, APPX/NET, and using the Java-based APPX Client from a browser.
At the completion of the course, the student gets a copy of the WEB application used during the course and the CGI scripts that were used to integrate APPX to the Unix based web server. These materials can then be used as a starting point for their own web development projects.
