Designing Application Systems with System Designer
System Designer provides a designer surface for designing application systems that are composed from applications defined on the application diagram or systems defined on other system diagrams. You can then progressively design larger and more complex systems by composing them from systems containing other systems. After you design a system, you can evaluate its deployment in the target datacenter.
