Application Sharing Using DSC

Inter Application Communication

Virtual Environment

  • Administrator controls & configures the virtual application separately

  • Create a “one to one” scenario for single applications that are dependant on each other

  • Create a “many to one” scenario where middleware and plug ins components can be reused

  • Reduces the potential package size

  • Single application with no dependencies still exist

  • Application known to not conflict may be configured to share the same virtual environment

  • Mandatory/Optional dependency configuration options

  • Virtual applications can share common dependencies
