Application Deployment Overview

Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page

The application deployment process consists of two stages.

1.The image is stripped of redundant objects (development tools, classes, methods etc.) in order to make it, and therefore the final application executable, smaller. At the same time, the standard DevelopmentSessionManager instance that normally controls the development environment is replaced by an instance of RuntimeSessionManager or one of its subclasses.
2.Subsequently the stripped image is saved out in the format of an executable (EXE) file.

Both stages are implemented by the ImageStripper class.

An ImageStripper object can be configured with a number of options. These control how the stripping operation proceeds and also determine the name of the executable file to which the image will be deployed. It is the job of the Lagoon Deployment Wizard to provide the user interface for setting these options and to instigate the deployment process.
