Creating and installing a Deployment Descriptor file

A Deployment Descriptor file tells the Corticon Server which Ruleflows to load and how to handle transaction requests for those Ruleflows. A Deployment Descriptor file has the suffix .cdd, and we will often simply refer to it as a .cdd file.
Important: The.cdd file points at the Ruleflow via a path name - a name can contain spaces but it is a good practice to avoid spaces and special characters except for underscore (_) character.
Deployment Descriptors are easily created using the Deployment Console, which is installed only by the Corticon Server installers.
