The application development workflow using XDS begins with making sure you have met all the requirements needed to use the tool.

Once requirements are met, you have some options for getting the application source files together. These options depend on where the XDS Server part is running and which Client Part configuration you are using (i.e. Standalone, On-Premise, or SaaS).

You can build the application several ways:

  • Use the XDS Client Command Line
  • Use the XDS Client Dashboard
  • Use a third-party Interactive Development Environment (IDE) application (e.g. NetBeans, Visual Studio, and so forth).
