Using ThinApp Virtual Applications in VMware Mirage App Layers
As you all know, VMware ThinApp has been the leading application virtualization solution since 2008. ThinApp is great for application virtualization, for application isolation (enabling multiple versions of the same application on one desktop), and for supporting older applications (legacy apps). Packaging an application with ThinApp is straightforward, and VMware has published many articles on this topic. You can find information through the VMware knowledge base article Best practices for capturing an application for VMware ThinApp 4.x/5.x (KB 1030290), and you can also find many good how-to articles on the ThinApp community forum. This article does not focus on the packaging of applications, but instead focuses on application deployment of ThinApp packages through VMware Mirage application layers (app layers). We expect that you are already familiar with creating and deploying Mirage application layers.
Using Mirage Dynamic Collections
Mirage app layer technology is an application distribution mechanism for physical PCs and virtual machines. You can assign an app layer to a machine or a group of machines based on multiple criteria, making the assignment very flexible. In addition, you can create a Dynamic Collection of similar PCs, and any subsequent PCs fitting the defined criteria will be assigned immediately to that collecti
