Note The workbenches is a Windows client-only feature.

The workbench is the window that contains all the Service Manager interface. Its primary panes are views (such as System Navigator or Properties) and the editor.

The workbench uses perspectives to organize the views and the editor into task-oriented configurations. It changes the title bar according to your perspective and what form you use. You can also configure the workbench in the preferences. The form name appears at the bottom right corner of the workbench.

When you open a connection to a different server or to the same server, you open a new workbench. There is no limit to the number of workbenches you can have open at one time, although you can only run one client at a time.
