Creating New Project Types

Instead of using the project types available from Web Builder, you can create your own project type that will be available to use with subsequent new projects. When you create a new project type, you can customize the way Web Builder generates a project.

To create a new project type:

  1. Open Web Builder, click Options, and then User-defined Project Types.

  2. On the User-defined Project Types dialog box, click New.

  3. From the Copy this project type list, select the project type that will be the template for your new project type.

  4. Enter the name and description for the project type.

  5. Click Build.

To modify the project type files

After creating a new project type, you can modify the files that are used to build the project. The resources folder contains files that you can modify for each project.

  1. In the User-Defined Project Types dialog box, select the project type you want to modify, click Explore. The <Documents>\Micro Focus\Verastream\HostIntegrator\userpluginprojects folder is now accessible.

  2. Make changes to the files in the subfolders in the Resources folder:

  3. In the User-Defined Project Types dialog box, select your new project type and click Rebuild to incorporate the changes into the new project type.

Keyboard Mapping for Web Applications

You can map your keyboard so specific workstation keyboard keys will function as terminal keys for a host application. Keyboard mapping is available for Java or .NET Web applications.

You can implement keyboard mapping after a project is built, or incorporate it into a User-Defined Project Type, which can be used to build subsequent Web applications using the same keyboard map.
