  4. Notice that the HOMEPAGE parameter has no value. Assign it the value ZenTutorial.HomePage.cls. This is the main page and home page of our application. The following tutorial page contains instructions for creating it.

    Parameter HOMEPAGE="ZenTutorial.HomePage.cls";  

    Compile ZenTutorial.Application by clicking Build–>Compile on the Studio menu bar.
