An application archive is a deployment unit for an application that is generated in TIBCO Business Studio™. It is the only artifact that is handed from the design phase to the runtime as it contains all the bundles and metadata that is required to deploy and run the application.
Applications are developed using the features available in TIBCO Business Studio™ and can range from simple to very complex. An application consists of an application module (Application Modules), which in turn consists of one or more processes that define the business logic, and zero or more shared modules (Shared Modules). Applications can also contain OSGi bundles that do not contain TIBCO artifacts.
Note: Application Archives created with TIBCO Business Studio™ should not exceed 5MB in total size.
