Mini CRM Tutorial

With this tutorial, you'll create a little example application with Scout SDK, where you can enter and edit companies.


This tutorial assumes that you have installed Scout SDK as described in Download and Install Scout SDK

Create New Scout Project

Creating new scout projects is described here. That page also shows how to launch the server and the client.

Get example Database

Follow the instructions on this page to get our small Apache Derby example database.

Set up SQL Service

Now we need to tell the application how to contact the database. How this works is described here.

Write the first Page

A standard Eclipse Scout application consists of pages in a tree structure. A page typically shows data in some sort of table. If you write an application, you need to start with a page. Learn more

You should have a tiny Eclipse Scout application running at the end of this step!

You will end up with the following tree structure for your application:

Standard Outline
 └─Company Table Page

Very simple indeed!

Add a search form

We created a page with a table listing all the companies in the database. Add a search form that allows users to limit the number of rows returned. Learn more

Add a form to edit the data

In order to edit the data in our page, we need to create a context menu to call a form, create the form and the process service it needs to actually select, insert, update (and possibly delete) the data. Learn more
