|Oracle Java CAPS Master Index User's Guide Java CAPS Documentation|
This document provides instructions for creating a master index application using Oracle Java CAPS Master Index. It includes creating the master index application framework, creating custom Java code, generating the application files, and creating the database. It also includes performing a data analysis using the framework created for the master index application.
The following steps outline and link to the procedures you need to follow to develop a master index application. Not all tasks are covered in this document. Where a process is covered in a separate document, the link is in italics.
Perform a preliminary analysis of the data you plan to store in the master index application.
Create a new project and a new Oracle Java CAPS Master Index application within that project (described in Creating a Master Index Application).
Define the object structure, operating environment, and certain runtime characteristics using the wizard (described in Creating a Master Index Application).
Define and build custom plug-ins, and specify the plug-ins in the appropriate configuration file (described in Implementing Master Index Custom Plug-ins).
Customize the configuration files (instructions for this step are provided in a separate document, Oracle Java CAPS Master Index Configuration Guide).
Generate the master index application (described in Generating the Master Index Application).
Create the database (described in Creating the Master Index Database).
Customize the database scripts by defining system information, processing codes, and drop-down menu values.
Create the database structure and any necessary indexes.
Define database connectivity in the application server.
Analyze and cleanse existing data that will be preloaded into the master index database (instructions for this step are provided in a separate document, Analyzing and Cleansing Data for a Master Index.
Build and deploy the project.
Define security for the Master Index Data Manager (MIDM) (described in Defining Master Index Data Manager Security in Oracle Java CAPS Master Index Maintenance Guide.
Load the initial data set into the master index database (this is described in a separate document, Loading the Initial Data Set for a Master Index).
