Recommendations for Editing Developer Studio Files in App Studio
can open all Developer Studio files in App Studio. If you choose
to edit these files in App Studio, consider the following recommendations.
- When saving your
changes, choose the Save As option. This
option saves the file under a different name without changing the
- You can run Developer
Studio and App Studio simultaneously. However, it is not advised
to edit the same file in both, at the same time.
- You can edit procedure
(.fex) files in App Studio and Developer Studio if the features
that you use to edit those files exist in both products.
- When you open an
HTML page in App Studio, the HTML page will undergo a conversion
process. The conversion occurs in memory. You may execute the page
in App Studio to verify correct functionality upon execution. If
you save the page, the converted code will be saved. If you exit
the tool without saving, the converted code will not be saved. You
cannot reopen converted pages in Developer Studio. Only HTML pages
created in Release 7.0 Version 6.9 and higher can be directly converted.
For earlier releases, you will need to first open your HTML page
in a Release 8 version of Developer Studio, and save it, before
opening it in App Studio.
- You can open, edit, and run existing Visual Discovery dashboards.
However, you cannot add additional Visual Discovery controls. You
can edit existing Visual Discovery controls in the Settings panel,
in the HTML canvas. To create new Visual Discovery dashboards, you
can use the Visual Discovery Advanced Edition (AE) Workbench.
- Maintain development is being integrated into App Studio as
part of the HTML canvas, in a future release. To create Maintain
files, continue to use Developer Studio.
