Composing modular applications

Previous Next

When composing applications using modules, be aware of the following:

In the Internal Interface Consumers window, the "File to be used in the synchronisation process" is only relevant for the development-time synchronisation. This is the reason that you could specify another filename here as the module name. For example, the Module Name is TRAVEL, and the file to be used is "TRAVEL_Version1.con".

However, be aware that run-time, the flat file with name TRAVEL.con will be read.

In the Application Modules window, the Load Module checkbox specifies whether the module is read when the application is started.

Rules Engine parameters need to be defined in the Definer of the main module. Settings from other modules are ignored.

If you want to make translations of system messages (ending up in a SMG flat file), you are advised to define them in the Definer of the main module. If you want to translate application strings (ending up in a UMG flat file), take care that there are not multiple translations of one application string in different modules.
