Environment Information

If you want to know the launch environment of your client application, simply ask the launcher. A launcher is always related to a specific environment, e.g., web/html, mobile, or desktop.

If you use JVx' DBSecurityManager, be aware that it checks ENV_ columns. If your WORKSCREENS table contains the column ENV_DESKTOP (values: Y, N), the security manager ignores all screens that don't fit your client environment. It's very easy to configure one screen for different environments without changing role assignments.
