Service Builder VScode is just the UI. It must connect to a BackLogic workspace to work. The BackLogic workspace is your virtual private develpment environment for data access services.
Inside the workspace are the Service Builder Backend, Service Repository and Service DevTime. The Service Builder Backend does the heavy lifting for Service Builder, and deploys the data access services into the Service Repository. The Service DevTime runs the data access services from the Service Repository for development purpose. Both the Service Builder and Service DevTime connects to your DEV database, for DB meta data and DB data, respectively.
- Use Workspace Explorer to connect to BackLogic workspace or start TryWithoutSignup service
- Use Application Explorer to develop and deploy application, module and services
- Use Deployment Explorer to view and test applications and services deployed on DevTime.

Once you have
Service Builder installed, open the
Getting Started tutorial from the
Workspace Explorer, and follow the instructions to create your first data access application.
If you have aleady signed up with BackLogic, you may get your workspace url and access token from the Service Console for workspace connection. You also need a DEV database of your own, with the
ClassicModels sample database pre-installed.
However, if you are trying without signup,
Service Builder will assign you a guest workspace with a guest database. It will also create the application and module for you, so that you can jump to creating query, SQL and CRUD services directly.
Try without Signup is a quick way to get your first-hand experience with data access services.
