Building Applications with Barista


Follow these steps to build a Barista form and add it to the menu system:

  1. Element Types. Define the element types that will be used by a table. An element type can be defined in a general way (e.g. TEXT_30 can be used for many different kinds of text fields), or it can correspond to a single data element (e.g. CUSTOMER_ID always references a customer ID).

  2. Tables. Define the physical layout of a table (file) and describe the data elements in the table.

  3. Form Designer. Build the data entry form that will be used to maintain the table.

  4. Menu Designer. Add the newly developed program to the menu system.
