About

  • This page outlines a proposal for how the current Higgins Components page will be redesigned/repurposed to be the Higgins download page.
  • Definitions:
    • A Solution is a specific combination of Higgins Components that, when assembled and deployed, result in either an infrastructure-level service, or an end-user application.
    • A Sub-Solution is a specific higher level functional Higgins Components that as a standalone deployment can provide an infrastructure-level service.
    • A Component is a low level Higgins Components that serves as functional building block in support of Higgins Solutions defined above.
  • The below sections outline the major content points in prioritized order of appearance on the new Higgins download page.
