    When your application accesses a data source, it needs to know how to interpret the data used in the application. With this course, you’ll learn how to create, manage, and enhance a data source description (Master File), a key component in a WebFOCUS application.

    You will learn how to:

    • Generate a Synonym for an existing relational data source
    • Create a Master File using the Synonym Editor in Developer Studio
    • Explore the required and optional attributes for a field
    • Edit a Master File using the Text Editor in Developer Studio
    • Add a virtual field to a segment
    • Interpret the Master File for a HOLD file
    • Create a cross reference to another file
    • Create a Business View from an existing data source description

    Who should take this class:

    Administrators and developers who want to create, manage, and understand the metadata for WebFOCUS applications.



    At least one of the prerequisite courses is required.
