Deploying Cross-Platform Applications
Go Up to Cross-Platform Applications
Deployment can have two different meanings in RAD Studio:
- Deployment is a required step that the IDE automatically performs when you run your cross-platform application in the debugger.
- When you run or debug a cross-platform application, the application is deployed to the target platform. Make sure that the IDE is connected to the target platform whenever you run or debug. The application must have an associated remote profile, and the Platform Assistant must be installed and running on the target platform.
- Deployment is the final step that you perform in successfully delivering any completed project.
- To deploy applications that use the Platform Assistant and a remote profile, you can use the Deployment Manager. Click Project > Deployment.

When you are ready to deploy your completed Mac OS X application, the recommended way to assemble and group the necessary files is to use the Deployment Manager. Your deployed Mac OS X application is not just the executable, but includes a set of object files and shared libraries (
