Has Scopeland installed its own runtime environment and, if so, in which programming language are the Scopeland applications generated by Direct Desk created?
In the conventional sense yes: The Direct Desk represents in the figurative sense such a runtime environment for Windows-based SCOPELAND programs. Depending on the access rights profile, the required functions are activated for each individual user. The applications created, on the other hand, do not require their own project directory: they are stored directly in the database. The Scopeland applications are also basically only metadata, via which the direct desk then controls its program parts.
The Direct Desk does not program, but only configures, and the configuration is then stored in the metadata. In order to roll out a new or changed application, it only needs to be loaded into the database. This also makes versioning and software configuration management very easy. All installations and updates of the application solutions only take place on the database server, which extremely reduces the rollout risks.
