This tutorial covers creating Classic Financial Management applications. A Classic Financial Management application is a stand-alone application. It has its own profile that defines the calendar and the languages for the application. It also has its own metadata file that defines its dimensions.
Your company wants you to create a stand-alone application named Training1, which will be used for training purposes. The application's language is English, and the application is based on a standard calendar year, divided into quarters and months. The start month is January 2008, and the duration is ten years.
