About building a Jaguar client
A PowerBuilder application can act as a client to a Jaguar
CTS server. To access a method associated with a component on the
Jaguar server, the PowerBuilder client needs to connect to the server,
instantiate the component, and invoke the component method.
About using the wizards
PowerBuilder provides two wizards to facilitate the development
of Jaguar clients:
Object wizard Adds code required to connect to the Jaguar server
- Jaguar Proxy wizard Helps you create projects for building proxy objects for
the Jaguar components you want to access from the client
About the development process
Steps for building a Jaguar client
To build and deploy a Jaguar client, you need to complete
the following steps:
- Use the
Jaguar Connection Object Wizard (or the Template Application Start
Wizard) to create a standard class user object inherited from the Connection
object. You can then use this object in a script to establish a connection.
- Use the Jaguar Proxy Wizard to create a project
for building proxy objects. Then generate the proxy objects.
- Create the windows, menus, and scripts required
to implement the user interface.
- Write the code required to create the Jaguar component
instance and call one or more component methods from the client.
- Test and debug the client.
- Deploy the application.
