Configuring your Web Application

ApplinX provides a Web based configuration editor where you can configure framework parameters. These parameters are saved in config/gx_appConfig.xml file. Refer to Web Application Configuration Parameters for a list of the parameters, and to the help in the Configuration Editor.

These parameters can be manually configured in the gx_appConfig.xml file.

Start of instruction set To configure the framework:

  1. Open a new browser and run your Web application.


  2. Click on the Configuration link. The Configuration Editor will be displayed.

    The left side of the window displays the nodes. Clicking on a plus sign expands the node and displays all the parameters in this node. Click on a parameter/node to display the relevant Javadoc on the right side of the window.


  3. Expand and collapse the various nodes as necessary to change the framework parameters.

  4. Click Save to save your changes.

  5. Click Close to return to the Web application.

When using Eclipse, in order to implement the framework configuration changes, in both the design and runtime Eclipse environments, select the config\gx_appConfig.xml configuration file in your project folder.

In IE8 and above, when opening a new tab in the browser and navigating to your Web application, the same ApplinX session will be used in both tabs.
