Object Types

Restriction: This topic applies only when the AppMaster Builder AddPack has been installed, and applies only to Windows platforms.

An AMB project can contain one or more of each of the following types of objects:

An application object serves as a container for all of the objects associated with the application.
A program object contains one program, either created in Online Express or in the Program Painter.
A screen object contains one screen, created in the Screen Painter.
Database views
A Data View defines the records in your database that are available to the program or programs in your application.
Data structures
A data structure is usually a global object that contains structures written in the Data Editor Structure format.
User rules
A user rule object defines a rule coded using MFG structures, COBOL, S-COBOL, or a combination of the three.
Program stubs
A program stub is defined as part of an application but is not a full program. You can call a stub from another program, and it is available to all programs in the application of which it is a part. Stubs do not get generated as programs.
