To better manage the application you've distributed, you can configure the Application object to:
Automatically cache the application's files to the local workstation (if the distribution requires installation of the application). This enables users to install or fix problems with the application when they are disconnected from eDirectory and your network. See Novell Application Launcher: Managing the Cache.
Add the Application object to a folder in the Application Window, Application Explorer window, Application Browser window, or on the Windows Start menu. See Section 25.0, Novell Application Launcher: Organizing Applications.
Ensure that all dependent applications are automatically distributed before the application. For example, if AppA has a dependency on AppB and AppC, you can ensure that AppB and AppC are installed before AppA. See Section 37.0, Advanced Distribution: Configuring Application Dependencies and Chains
Report on the success or failure of events such as distributing, caching, and uninstalling the application on workstations. See Section 44.0, Reporting Application Events.
Track the number of licenses being used for the application. See Section 45.0, Metering Software Licenses.
Determine the schedule of when the application is available. See Schedule Page.
Set up backup copies of the application's file package to enable fault tolerance. See Section 36.1, Setting Up Fault Tolerance.
Define multiple Application objects for the same application and enable load balancing. See Section 36.2, Setting Up Load Balancing.
Set up site lists to enable users who travel from site to site to install applications from the closest server. See Section 36.3, Setting Up Site Lists.
Define many additional Application object properties to control the behavior of the application. For information about all Application object properties, see Section 48.0, Reference: Application Object Settings.
