The ApplicationHandle class is an extension to ApplicationEnvironment for applications which need to be set up in some way before they can be used. For each supported setup method a string MAY be specified, the interpretation of which is specific to the method - in the simplest case this could just be a setup script to execute. A single Application MAY support multiple setup methods.

Note: The OGF Glue 2 Specification defines the ApplicationHandle_t as an open numeration, with values of:

  • executable
  • module
  • Path
  • softenv

Presently no information is published in the BDII that uses this Class. However, it may be seen as a very good way to correctly bootstrap the environment for the users job. If we choose to look at using the ApplicationHandle Class, we need some easy way for each instance to be be created using yaim etc.
