The LANSA Software Components are the LANSA program objects that are installed on a platform. These are the programs that LANSA uses to support both the development environment and the application execution environment.
Each LANSA product has its own set of software components and may also share its software components with other LANSA products.
For example, web enabling requires the LANSA for i or Visual LANSA software components to be installed.
As LANSA supports an n-tier architecture, all LANSA Software Components do not have to be installed on the same machine or platform. For example, the Web's Web Server Components may be installed on a different machine (Web Server) than the Visual LANSA Software Components (Data/Application Server).
