Task 1: Copy Test Data and Application

Advantage Concepts

Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page

This tutorial uses a simplified order-entry database, which can be found in the aep_tutorial\task1 directory of your installation (default is: c:\Program Files\Advantage X.x\TDataSet\examples\aep_tutorial\task1). Copy the contents of this directory to a working directory, which will be referred to as x:\data throughout this tutorial.

Take a few moments to open this database using the Advantage Data Architect (ARC) and become familiar with the tables and their contents. The ADSSYS login password is empty.

A simple test application is also included with the database, tester.dpr. Tester.dpr uses a TAdsStoredProc object to call the stored procedure we are going to create. It should be noted that tester.exe (or "tester" in Linux) will need to be compiled, and will not function correctly until you have finished Task 6 of this tutorial.
