Adding built-on applications
To save time and reduce development costs you can reuse elements between your applications, such as rules and features, by adding built-on applications. When you build your application stack, you ensure that you meet business requirements in an efficient way.For example, when you create an application to review mortgage requests, you can add a built-on application that workers use to review loan requests, and then reuse the elements that are relevant to the mortgage cases.
In the header of Dev Studio, click the name of the application, and then click Definition.
In the Built on applications section, click Add application.
In the Name field, enter the name of the application that you want to add.
In the Version field, enter the version of the application that you want to add.As a best practice, add the latest version of your application.
- Best practices for using multiple built-on applications
To increase reuse between your Pega Platform applications and speed up the development process, enhance your applications by using multiple built-on applications. Built-on applications are structured as a hierarchical application tree.
- Application stack hierarchy for multiple built-on applications
When you use multiple built-on applications, Pega Platform automatically converts the hierarchical application tree of multiple built-on applications into a single linear application stack. As a result, you can shorten development time and increase consistency in your application by reusing rulesets and frameworks.
