Developing applications

This section provides you information about developing Digital Service applications. BMC Helix Platform provides two ways to develop an application: developing codeless application and developing a code-based application.

  • Administrators can develop codeless applications by using BMC Helix Innovation Studio. Development of codeless applications requires minimal programming knowledge or dependency on developers. Administrators can create codeless applications that require less customization and are not complex. These applications consist of definitions and data only, and do not include libraries.
  • Developers can develop code-based applications by using the BMC Helix Platform SDK, BMC Helix Innovation Studio, and Maven archetypes. With code-based applications, developers can extend the BMC Helix Platform to create custom components, custom REST APIs, connectors, and so on.
