Application types

An application type classifies an application in your system, based on the functionality that it provides or the organization that created it. You choose an application type when you create an application so that you can reuse relevant resources.

The following types of applications are supported:

  • PegaRULES - The standard Pega Platform application whose functionality all applications inherit by default.

    You can build directly on this application when there are no reusable applications in your system, or you are building a custom application.

  • Standard applications - Small-scale applications that provide real-life examples of work flows and their related cases and data.

  • Reusable applications - Existing applications in your system that users have configured for reuse.

    For example, you can configure your production application for reuse to speed up development for a future version or release.
