Defining and managing applications

An AR System application is a container object that contains a related set of forms, workflow objects, and other information designed and packaged together to allow users to accomplish a task. When you create an application, you define it as a local application or a deployable application. 

A local application is the original AR System application type and is most appropriate when the application is intended for use on the same AR System server where it is developed.

Local applications are intended for use on a small number of servers. They use permissions based on groups, which means that each local application is designed for one specific server environment. If you must move or copy an application to another server, you must create the same groups on the destination server, or else redefine permissions for many objects in the application, including forms, fields, and workflow.

A deployable application includes functionality that makes it easier to develop and maintain the application in a development environment, test it in a test environment, and then deploy it to any number of production servers for end user access.

The following sections describe the two types of applications you can create:
