We strongly recommend that you import the sample DEM partition and get it working with the L4WEX functions (SuperServer) before attempting to use your own application. This will achieve 2 objectives:
1. It will allow any application connection or translation problems that you encounter to be assessed within an environment that both you and LANSA support staff have available.
2. It will provide you with a basic example of deploying the server portion of an application to Linux, again in an environment that both you and LANSA support staff have available.
Create the sample L4WEX functions, provided in 1.5 Verification Application Code (L4WEX functions) on the process menu L4WEXAM1.
Follow the instructions in 1.4 Deliver the Server Portion of an Application to Linux to deploy DEM to Linux.
Once you have everything ready, you should attempt to execute the verification process L4WEXAM1.
Follow the instructions in Executing Applications with a Linux Server to test with the verification process L4WEXAM1. The function L4WEX01 should be used as the starting point.
Once you have successfully tested the DEM partition, go ahead and deploy and test your own application.
If you plan to support non-English languages, you should also do some basic testing in an additional language, to ensure there are no codepage / locale issues. As the demo only ships with English, French, and Japanese text, you may need to enter some language-specific text, or use your own simple application code to test.
