It looks like you used VS Code to directly open the folder (C:\InterSystems\IRIS\CSP\goerke\) which your (local desktop instance) IRIS created for the /csp/goerke webapp it configured when you added a GOERKE namespace using IRIS Portal.

I think this is going to get confusing for you, particularly if you try to use documentation or training material.

Here's what I recommend you do:

1. Close your the folder in VS Code.

2. Copy your C:\InterSystems\IRIS\CSP\goerke into a folder where you will edit your source files, and perhaps in future source-control them with Git. For example, copy it to c:\MyProjects

3. Open the newly-created folder in VS Code (e.g. c:\MyProjects\goerke)

4. Reconfigure your /csp/goerke webapp in IRIS Portal so it points again to C:\InterSystems\IRIS\CSP\goerke

5. Delete all contents of C:\InterSystems\IRIS\CSP\goerke (files and folders), since you already have a copy of these in c:\MyProjects\goerke

Now when you edit a CSP file in VS Code and save it under c:\MyProjects\goerke\src a copy of it will appear in C:\InterSystems\IRIS\CSP\goerke and the /csp/goerke webapp will use this.

When you edit a CLS file in VS Code, saving this writes the class into the GOERKE namespace but doesn't create a file under C:\InterSystems\IRIS\CSP\goerke because IRIS classes live in IRIS databases, not in host OS files.

I guess you are looking for a way to launch the XML Schema Wizard add-in that Studio offers.

Try adapting the advice at for adding a custom entry to the Server Actions menu. In this case the entry in the "links" object within "objectscript.conn" should be:

"Open XML Schema Wizard": "${serverUrl}/isc/studio/templates/%25ZEN.Template.AddInWizard.XMLSchemaWizard.cls?$NAMESPACE=${ns}"

Thanks for the suggestions. The solution I came up with can be seen at

It installs a class, runs a method in it to create the web app so it uses the correct namespace, then deletes the class. Actually, it deletes a whole package which I named %Z.IPM.Bootstraps with the idea that this could be by convention a package reserved for exactly this purpose.

I had to devise a little hack to prevent the deletion from happening during packaging, otherwise the web-app-creating class wouldn't actually be in the package, meaning end-user installation would fail.

Maybe there's already a better way of achieving the effect I wanted.
