While launching the eStudio application, Workspace Selection dialog is shown prompting for the workspace directory. Workspace is a directory where all the repositories (Event Processes, Services and other metadata) are stored.
The default workspace is set to $FIORANO_HOME/runtimedata/eStudio/workspace. It is recommended to use the default workspace, but it may be changed if required.
The following preferences are stored in workspace preferences: wsLastUsedWorkspaces, wsRemember and wsRootDir.
- If a user chooses a workspace and selects the Remember Workspace option, this can then be changed by changing the value of wsRemember to false in the workspace preferences.
- When the Fiorano eStudio has completely launched, a user can switch between different workspaces. The option to switch the workspace is present at File > Switch Workspace.
- The current workspace selected is shown in the Fiorano eStudio title bar.
By default, eStudio is launched in the Offline Event Process Development perspective and the offline repository is populated when eStudio is launched for the first time.
