Designing Application Systems on System Diagrams

In System Designer, you can design application systems by adding applications and systems as members. The following topics describe how to design a system.

How to: Add Members to Application Systems

Describes how to add systems and applications as members to a system definition.

How to: Rename Members in Application Systems

Describes how to rename members in a system definition.

How to: Add Endpoints to Application Systems

Describes how to add endpoints to a system definition.

How to: Add Endpoints to Members of Application Systems

Describes how to add endpoints to members of a system definition.

How to: Rename Endpoints on System Diagrams

Describes how to rename endpoints on a system definition and its members.

How to: Delete Endpoints from System Diagrams

Describes how to delete endpoints from a system definition and its members.

How to: Delete Members from Application Systems

Describes how to delete members from a system definition.

Considerations for Deleting Members and Endpoints from Application Systems

Describes considerations to remember when you delete items from system diagrams.

External Applications in Application Systems

Provides guidelines and approaches to including external applications, such as external Web services and databases, with their referencing applications.

How to: Combine External Applications with Referencing Applications in Application Systems

Describes how to combine external applications with their referencing applications.

How to: Specify Optional Members in Application Systems

Describes how to specify members of a system definition as optional or required when you deploy an instance of the system.

How to: Specify Scalable Members in Application Systems

Describes how to specify whether multiple instances of a member can be installed when you deploy an instance of the system.

How to: Display the System View Window

Describes how to open the System View window so that you can add existing applications and systems to a system definition.

Getting Started with Distributed System Designers

Introduces Distributed System Designers, common tasks performed across designers, accessibility information, and walkthroughs.

Designing Application Systems with System Designer

Introduces System Designer, which you can use to design application systems composed from applications or other systems.

Delegating and Exposing Behavior of Application Systems

Contains topics about providing access to members of systems so that you can connect them outside those systems.

Viewing Items from System Diagrams

Contains topics about viewing certain items on or from system diagrams, such as underlying definitions of system members, endpoint details, and settings or constraints on members.

Defining Communication Pathways on System Diagrams

Contains topics about creating and configuring connections between members of systems on system diagrams.

Troubleshooting System Diagrams

Describes and helps resolve issues that can affect system diagrams and other distributed system diagrams.

Designing Applications with Application Designer

Introduces Application Designer, which you can use to design, configure, and connect applications within a solution.

Evaluating System Deployment with Deployment Designer

Introduces Deployment Designer, which you can use to evaluate deployment of application systems.

Common Tasks Across Distributed System Designers

Describes common tasks you can perform across designers in Distributed System Designers.

Distributed System Designer Walkthroughs

Provides walkthroughs through core tasks you can perform using Distributed System Designers.
