Getting started with QDF

Dear all,

I am trying to start my application using QDF. I understand that there is certain folder structure to follow while developing. I have read documents, seen videos, etc. to get to know more on the same. However, I could not figure out where to start this. Not having clarity on creating the folder structures in which path. Should I be creating folders or the folder structure will be auto-generated while reloading the init. qvs. kindly clarify.

Thank you,
Regards,

Sai

Re: Getting started with QDF

The folder structure is created when you use the QDF installation tool or the VariableEditor.qvw application to create your first container.

Re: Getting started with QDF

Hi Saimeenakshi, sorry to hear that you find it difficult getting started. As Andrew mentioned that using the Deploy Tool you can design and deploy the containers (you can still use variable editor but that's optional). Deploy tool comes in a zip file together with a simple ReadMe.pdf please read this first and after you can start with the basics. After you set up the first container environment, the exercises (for QlikView and Qlik Sense) will guide you. Hope that this helps.

Best regards

Magnus

Re: Getting started with QDF

Saimeenakshi, are you using Qlik Sense or QlikView? So that I can guide you in the best possible way.
