Creating environment files

In NexJ Studio, you work on your model by defining an environment file.

Environment files represent logical and physical system configurations for tasks such as development, testing, staging, and production. Each environment configures your model to use specific application servers and databases, and stores information such as log-ons, deployment configurations, and connections. During the development process, you can create a single environment for each system, or tailor multiple environments for each task that a system may perform.

Environment files created for development are stored in the env folder of your project. Global environment files for deploying published models are stored in the folder specified by the Global environment folder preference. The Global environment folder is set in NexJ Studio from the menu bar by selecting Window → Preferences → NexJ Studio.
