Web Builder

Web Builder is a component of the Host Integrator Development Kit that enables you to generate and deploy web applications and component interfaces from a Host Integrator model. Web Builder uses the model to complete the encapsulation process that enables you to write new applications using legacy functionality.

Web Builder provides a variety of abstraction levels that enable you to deliver host functionality in the appropriate format for your business needs.


Web Builder is installed with the Host Integrator Development Kit.

To open Web Builder:

  • From the Design Tool: Click File > Web Builder or click the Generate New Web Project button on the standard toolbar.

  • From the Start menu: Click Start > Programs > Micro Focus Verastream > Host Integrator> Web Builder.

Generating Web Builder Projects

Web Builder creates Web applications and objects (Java beans and a .NET class library) that provide Web and application developers programmatic access to host data and functionality. Programmers use these generated Web applications to test models of host applications, to prototype a Web application that accesses host data, and to generate sample code for incorporating host data into their Web or client/server applications.

Basic Steps to Build and Deploy a Verastream Web Builder Project

To create Web applications and component interfaces:

  1. Use the Host Integrator Design Tool to create a model.
  2. In the Design Tool, deploy the model to Web Builder.
  3. Set the Web Builder and project properties you want to use to generate a project.
  4. Use Web Builder to generate a project from the model.
  5. Implement the project into a Web or client/server application.
