Creating a component

Create a component to support feature reuse in another system or application. You can control which rulesets define your component and whether your component has dependencies on other rulesets or applications.

  1. In the header of Dev Studio, click Configure > Application > Components.
  2. Click New component.
  3. In the Label field, enter a name for your component ruleset.
  4. In the Version field, enter a number that distinguishes this version of the component from previous versions.
  5. Click Create and open.
  6. Update the Component rulesets. Change the default ruleset or add rulesets to the component.
  7. List required Prerequisites for this component.
  8. Click Save.
What to do next: Document your component so that users can decide whether to install and reuse it in their applications.
