An application is a coherent set of functionalities and (optionally) user interfaces that together allow one or more user groups to complete one or more tasks.
To register an application, its owner, and its user groups:
•In the Name field, type a unique name for the application.
•In the Description field, type a short description of the application.
•In the Owner field, type the name of the (database) user who owns the application, or click the Lookup button and select one from the list.
•Check or clear the Application on File checkbox, depending upon whether the application definitions are being read from file or not.
•If the application definitions are being read from file, type the name of the file, and if the file is not stored in your local APP directory, type the path to the file.
•In the User group field, type the name of the user group for this application, and for which you are defining a user group menu.
•In the Description field, type a short description of the user group.
•In the First Menu Page field (for client-server and/or Web, depending upon the application), type the name of the menu page that is to be the entry point into the menu system for this user group. This "first page" contains the items that will appear in the menu bar (for example File, Edit, Options, Editor, Window, and Help).
