Installation Instructions

Previous Next

To do the HTML Generator test drive, you have to perform the following actions and checks:

1.Install the USoft Series, including USoft Definer, Authorizer, USoft Production (runtime), and Batch Runner.
Refer to the USoft Installation help for details.
2.Create an empty database account (with 10-20 Mb of table space) on one of the supported RDBMSs.
Refer to your RDBMS documentation for details.
3.Change the Database properties for the predefined USoft Binder project:

Make sure the USoft Binder project that contains predefined settings for the HTML Generator Test Drive is opened. By default, this Binder project file is named htmlgen.usb. The htmlgen.usb binder file is located in the <installation directory>\TestDrive\HtmlGenerator folder.

In this predefined Binder project, choose File, Project Properties from the menu bar, and click the Database tab page.

Specify the User, Password, and RDBMS (connect string) of the database account that you want to use.

Click OK, and then click the Save button or choose File, Save from the menu bar.

4.Initialize the repositories for USoft Authorizer and USoft Definer:

Click the right mouse button on the Authorizer item in the Binder, and then choose Create Tables.

The Create Tables dialog appears.

Click the OK button.

Wait until the repository has been created successfully. This may take some time.

Click the OK button on the information message when the repository has been created successfully.

Repeat this procedure for the Definer item.

Preferably, the test drive is performed on an empty database account. If you want to use an existing repository for the test drive, however, you may have to perform some clean-up actions first. The data model that is used for the test drive contains four tables: TOUR, SCHEDTOUR, PERSON, and RESERVATION.

If your repository already contains definitions for such tables (e.g. because you have done some other test drive, or because you have been experimenting with the course material), make sure you manually delete these definitions, and drop these tables from your application's database.
