"BW Modeling" PerspectiveLocate this document in the navigation structure

Just like any other perspectives in Eclipse, the BW Modeling perspective defines the initial set and layout of tools (views and editors) in the Eclipse window. It thus provides a set of functions aimed at accomplishing BW Modeling tasks.

In particular, it enables working with BW metadata objects that are managed by a BW back end system. When using the BW Modeling perspective, you always have to establish a system connection that is managed by a corresponding BW project. You can use the BW project to access the system's BW metadata objects.

The BW perspective enables access to both Eclipse-based and GUI-based BW Modeling editors. It consists of an editor area, where the BW metadata object editors are placed, and the following views:

  • Project Explorer
  • Properties
  • Problems
  • History
  • BW Reporting Preview
  • InfoProvider
  • Outline
