An application built with Scout is a complete application. Typically it has a UI with perspectives, views, forms and pages. It may also have a back-end part that is running inside an application server with server-side Equinox.
Examples of such applications are:
- Standalone rich client platforms (Equinox, SWT/Swing)
- SOA/ESB node consisting of J2EE with service registry and web services (Equinox)
- Rich client platforms with a J2EE Backend (Equinox, SWT/Swing)
Scout SDK guides the developer in building Scout based SOA compliant applications.
