An Application Blueprint in Myst is a collection of components, which have been designed and implemented as part of the same logical solution. Over its lifecycle, an application will typically have multiple releases made into production, consisting of major and minor functional releases, as well as maintenance releases.
During the lifetime of each release, code that makes up an Application Release will be built and promoted many times to various environments such as Development, System Integration Test (SIT), User Acceptance Test (UAT) and Pre-Prod as it makes its journey to Production.
Over this journey, Application Blueprints are used to define the artifacts that constitute a version of an Application Release. The Application Blueprint is version controlled, allowing full control of the configuration of an Application release over time, and provides the flexibility to roll forward/backward to a different version of the release at any point in time.
