Designing Application Systems on System Diagrams 

In System Designer, you can design application systems by composing them from applications or other systems as members of those systems. While designing a system, you can expose behavior of members in a system and connect those members to specify how applications are connected at deployment. You can also override settings on applications that are designated as overridable on their underlying definitions. At any time, you can create deployment diagrams to evaluate deployment for the system in the target datacenter.
