A Visual LANSA System is described as Independent when it is not connected to an IBM i Master System. It maintains its own LANSA System Definition Data and is the sole arbiter of object permissions. It may have one or more 1.2.1 IBM i Slave Systems linked to it. This allows the Repository data to be shared by more than one developer, but there is only one Repository.
The Deployment Tool is used to move or export your LANSA applications developed on an Independent System.
One of the Client machines, or the Windows Server will need to be designated as the Build Machine. See 1.2.8 Windows Build Machine
