Restriction: This topic applies only when the AppMaster Builder AddPack has been installed, and applies only to Windows platforms.


Before attempting this tutorial, you must complete Tutorial: Start AppMaster Builder in Enterprise Developer for Eclipse

If you have closed Enterprise Developer, start it; then open the AppMaster Builder perspective.

Create the user area
Before you start creating applications, AMB needs to know where you want to store your generated code, and also needs you to define an AMB user ID to identify your jobs in the Job Queue. You do these by creating an AMB user area.
  1. With the AppMaster Builder perspective active, click User > User Area > Create.

    The User area directory field shows the default AMB user area parent directory, which is %PUBLIC%\Documents\Micro Focus\Enterprise Developer\AMBWorkArea.

  2. In the User name field, type your name, or a name you want to use as your AMB user ID. This user name is your AMB user ID.
  3. Click Create.

    AMB creates a new directory of the same name as your provided AMB user ID. This new directory is a subdirectory to the AMB user area parent directory shown in the User area directory field.

  4. Click Exit to close the Create User Area dialog box.
