Creating the Project

How to:

As an application developer for the WebFOCUS Electronics Corporation, you have been asked to create a reporting application that can be used during a monthly sales meeting. Your reporting application should contain a report that allows management to view data about products and sales over the course of a specific time period, as well as a user-selection form that shows this information in a graphical display.

After you have connected to the WebFOCUS Retail data source, you create a project named Retail using the Project Wizard. You build your reporting application in this project under the Projects node.
