Creating Applications


To create applications, perform the following steps:

1.

Open a command prompt, and change the directory to C:\Hyperion\products\Foundation\BPMA\EPMABatchClient. This is the default directory for Batch Client.

For more information on how to create Batch Client scripts, refer to the Oracle Hyperion Enterprise Performance Management Architect, Fusion Edition 11.1.1, Batch Client User's Guide.

 

2.

Enter the create application creation command and execute the application creation script. In this case, the script was validated and the application was successfully created.


3.

Check the EPMABatchClientResults log file to verify that the application was successfully created. The file is located in the default directory, C:\Hyperion\products\Foundation\BPMA\EPMABatchClient\output.

 

4.

Verify that the application appears in Application Library. In this case, the PLAN3 Planning application is now displayed.
