JADE Environment Development Ideas

Workspace assigned Application

It would be useful to set the schema and application for the current workspace in Jade IDE.

At the moment the schema (which is fixed) and the application (which is selectable) is located in the bottom RHS of the IDE's status line control.


I am requesting the ability to select the schema and therefore the application so that when I run the application it correctly picks up the application that resides on another schema to that I am working in.

Therefore the Workspace should have a schema & application and not change to which ever class browser window that has focus.


I work in parent schemas and the child schema where the application resides I do not have a browser window for. At the moment I need to navigate to the Schema Browser window to select the child schema in order to run the application.

    In the interim you may want to consider our approach. We've created a dummy application in our model schema which launches our main view schema app and immediately terminates. Means we don't have to swap to the sub schema to run our main application. Possibly worth considering as it saves a whole lot of unnecessary context switching for me on a daily basis.

    I agree that we need to be able to run a specific application regardless what schema the selected window is in, although this isn't the only way that could be achieved
