Import the Boomerang Package

Logon to the JDE development environment and start the Boomerang(Lite) application. In the Boomerang startup screen press F2 or choose File/Connect to connect to your JDE session. When connected, the screen will look like this (screenshots in this document are taken from the BoomerangLite version):

The first UDC import dialog is about the only standard object in the entire Version Workbench package: a code entry for the H90|FP UDC that will allow the new Fastpath command VW to launch the Version Workbench application by means of interactive version PQ46VW00|ZQ460001:
