Metadata db and the datadb can now be separate ūüôā

Single user Topology for development: Microsoft recomments the Single user topology when using sourcecontrol and to manage multiparty development

– Shared application topology is not recommened for the following reasons
– To debug a Pcode the visual studio needs to be used. During the attach process the AOS is paused for all user
– Server restarts for a single user stops the entire application

– Visual Studio Projects – Apart from the Synchornize to the AOT, we must right scripts to run MSbuild for these projects. This
ensures a proper VS project import

Deploying to the Production

– Element id’s as we all know is generated during the import of models, so it is recommended not to import models in to Production
system to avoid id conflicts

– Maintain a seperate staging setup where the metadatastore of the production and staging are maintained commonly. Import models to
the staging and then move the metadata

– Model store import is quicker, will bring the down time and speed up import.
