A developer can create a logical data object, physical data object, mapping, SQL data service, web service, or workflow and add it to an application in the Developer tool. To run the application, the developer must deploy it. A developer can deploy an application to an application archive file or deploy the application directly to the Data Integration Service.
As an administrator, you can deploy an application archive file to a Data Integration Service. You can enable the application to run and start the application.
When you deploy an application archive file to a Data Integration Service, the Deployment Manager validates the logical data objects, physical data objects, mappings, SQL data services, web services, and workflows in the application. The deployment fails if errors occur. The connections that are defined in the application must be valid in the domain that you deploy the application to.
The Data Integration Service stores the application in the Model repository associated with the Data Integration Service.
You can configure the default deployment mode for a Data Integration Service. The default deployment mode determines the state of each application after deployment. An application is disabled, stopped, or running after deployment.
