Setting up the environment to develop a code-based application

BMC Helix Innovation Studio enables you to build your own applications with the help of different designer consoles, deploy them for the end users, and manage or configure them. 

Before you start with developing applications, you must install the BMC Helix Innovation Studio SDK and the components required to develop applications. After you have installed the SDK, the application development process consists of creating a project by using Maven archetype and BMC Helix Innovation Studio SDK, implementing data and logical definitions by using BMC Helix Innovation Studio, extending the services using Java and JavaScript (if required), and packing and deploying the application.

The following image provides the broad level steps to setup the environment to develop a code-based application:

This section provides information about how you can setup the environment and installing the necessary tools to develop code-based applications, create application project, deploy the application in BMC Helix Innovation Studio.
