To start most applications, click the Start Application button. You can
specify that you want the application to start under Rational Purify,

To start an HTML application, click the Start Browser button. If you are
creating a script to be used on cross-browser testing, record the script in
Netscape and play back in Internet Explorer. (For more information, see

NOTE: To successfully test the objects in Oracle Forms, HTML, Java, Delphi,
C++, and Visual Basic 4.0 applications, enable the applications before you start
recording your scripts. For information, see Enabling IDE Applications for Testing on
page 2-4.
