application simulated deployment preflight
Application Simulated Deployment (“Preflight”)

DCR

  • Goal: Confidence in moving to state based dynamic applications
    • Did I do detection method right?
    • Did I get rules/relationships right?
    • What will my deployment type mix be?
  • What it does: Runs application as required in “rules only” mode
    • No content download, no execution of deployment type
    • Results – what would the system have done?
      • Processes detection method, requirement rules, dependencies and supersedence
    • Does NOT simulate the install!
