Space

Decision Insight uses spaces as logical groups of related application components. Spaces act like containers to hold definitions that describe your deployment.  When configured, spaces hold objects such as application rhythms, thresholds, data access paths, and the attributes and relationships that constitute the framework of your application.

An application uses 6 different types of spaces:

  • Classifiers – holds the logic for evaluations.
  • Instances – contains the instances of entities.
  • Initializers – holds the paths to the data needed at start-up.
  • Integration – contains the paths to the data absorbed in real-time.
  • Rhythms – holds the definitions of the periodic cycles of the application.
  • Model – holds the definition of entities, attributes, and relationships.

Decision Insight does not use the name of the space to identify the type of content you create in each space. You can give them any name you like. Because your production solutions will be shared and supported by others, it is strongly recommended that you use relevant and consistent names.

The names of the spaces give you a hint as to their content. 

Additionally, implementers routinely configure an additional optional space called trash. While the name is not important, the usage is: there may be situations in which you want to delete certain components, configured entities, etc. The typical way to do this is to move them into the trash space.
