Overview : Running the application : Configuration file locator

Configuration file locator

When the application deployer uses the Application Assembler, the Application Assembler writes the application definition to an application configuration file. The end user downloads the file as part of the initial download, and each time the end user starts the application.
As part of defining the application, the application deployer defines the server from which the end user downloads the application configuration file. WebClient uses this description, called the configuration file locator, to access the application configuration file on the configuration file server. For more information, see Hosting the WebClient Deployment .
Note: To allow the WebClient to continue execution even if the configuration file server is not available, select Allow execution to continue when unable to refresh prowcapp file under the General tab of the Web Application Assembler. See Defining applications in WebClient Application Assembler for more information.
