Creating a component

Updated on November 15, 2021

Create a component to support feature reuse in another system or application. You can control which rulesets define your component and whether your component has dependencies on other rulesets or applications.

  1. In the header of Dev Studio, click ConfigureApplicationComponents.
  2. Click New component.
  3. In the Label field, enter a name for your component ruleset.
  4. In the Version field, enter a number that distinguishes this version of the component from previous versions.
  5. Click Create and open.
  6. Update the Component rulesets. Change the default ruleset or add rulesets to the component.
  7. List required Prerequisites for this component.
  8. Click Save.
What to do next: Document your component so that users can decide whether to install and reuse it in their applications.
  • Documenting a component

    Document the components that you create to help users decide whether they can reuse your component in other applications.

  • Packaging a component

    You can use a component in applications on other systems. To import a component into another system, package the component.

  • Shared ruleset

    A shared ruleset contains a small number of rules that each operate on a common, top-level page of a single class (or of subclasses of that class).
