In this series of articles, we have seen how Enterprise Templates are a solid, cohesive part of an enterprise architecture plan. We have also had a detailed look at distributed application architecture as it relates to enterprise architecture and templates. We also discussed template policy files, Template Definition Language (TDL), application building blocks, customizing dynamic help, and so on. Specifically we discussed,

  • How to use enterprise template projects to create application starting points by specifying an initial application structure, including any reusable or standard components and technologies, design documents, and models
  • How to leverage the features provided by the enterprise templates for creating distributed applications
  • How to create the application framework that consists of reusable components that can greatly simplify programming tasks by including pre-written code to handle procedures such as application management, exception handling techniques, security, and so on.

The initial investment in creating enterprise templates can go a long way towards reducing the per-project overhead. This assumes greater significance, especially when you anticipate that a particular class of applications will be developed several times in your organization.
