Scout/Concepts/Type of application

Wiki Home

During the creation of a new Scout Project, it is possible to chose the type of application that should be created. This page gives an overview of the different types.

Empty application

This type of application correspond to the minimal application. No additional code is generated.

Single form application

In this type of application, the main window displays a form. In this example (Swing, Nimbus look and feel, Windows), the menu bar is displayed in this main window on top of the main form.

The SDK creates a form, called DesktopForm. This form comes with a process service (DesktopProcessService) and a form handler (DisplayFormHandler).

With this type of application, there is no default support for outlines and pages.

Outline based application

Outline based application is the most complete type of application. It is suitable if you want to represent outlines and their pages in the main window. In this example (Swing, Nimbus look and feel, Windows) the main window provides: the menu bar, a way to switch between the Outlines attached to the desktop, and a representation of the active outline: on the left hand side the page tree and on the right the selected page.
