About this task

An application is a specialized container in which you create and maintain all the resources associated with a business solution. You can create resources such as message flows, maps, broker schemas, and database definitions. You can also generate message models and import resources such as CORBA IDL files, XSLT files, and database records.

To create resources in your application, complete the following steps.


  1. Click File > New.
    (Alternatively, in the Application Development view, right-click an application, then click New.)
  2. Select the resource to create.

    The appropriate wizard opens; for example, the New Message Flow wizard.

  3. If the application name is not already provided, select it from the list of available applications.
  4. Follow the instructions in the wizard, then click Finish.

    The new resource is displayed under the application in the Application Development view.
