Creating a proxy class

Proxy classes that you develop are stored in the proxy project container. You must use proxy-class wizard development to create a proxy framework. The proxy writer must provide the logic for the proxy. For example, you must enter the logic for the methods and interfaces for the proxy to recognize the controls.

Before you begin

To use the proxy-development wizard to create a proxy class, you must switch to the Java perspective.
