Integrating a New Tool and Creating a New Application
If you have a software tool that you would like to have integrated into the iPlant Discovery Environment (DE), this can be done in just a few steps.
To get started, see Creating a New App Interface.
- App: Interface of a tool that has been configured and made available for use in the DE. The same tool can be used in more than one app, and may also be created by different integrators with different intents and interfaces.
- Tool: Software program (executable binary or executable) that is installed on a server and integrated into the back end of the DE for use in DE apps.
- Analysis: Detailed examination of data performed in the DE by selecting one or more apps to perform a desired task for the purpose of discussion or interpretation.
