Application Developers build applications by doing one of three primary tasks. First, a developer develops or analyzes the data that is to be used in the application. Second, the developer uses NetQuarry Studio to manipulate meta-data that describes to the NetQuarry runtime how the end application will look and manage the application’s data. Third, any custom business logic is written using any .NET language and IDE (e.g. Visual Studio .NET) to produce focused application extensions.
To describe an application to the NetQuarry runtime the developer interacts with the NetQuarry Studio. The NetQuarry Studio is a Windows application that manipulates the meta-data objects and guides the developer through the creation and management of these objects.
The Studio is built using both Microsoft .NET and the NetQuarry platform. It provides a Visual Studio developer with a familiar user interface paradigm further enhancing the productivity of developers.
NetQuarry Studio is not a replacement for Visual Studio. Rather, it is the main tool interface used to describe the application. Developers still use Visual Studio to write business logic using the .NET language of their choice.
