Projects in the Mendix Metamodel

Last update: Edit

1 Introduction

A Mendix app model starts with a project. A project contains several top-level or project documents such as settings and security, and it contains the modules that make up a Mendix app.

1.2 Project Documents

Project-level documents describe project security, app settings, app navigation (for the different modes of navigation) and translations of the texts in your app.

2.1 Overview

A module consists of a domain model, model security settings and zero or more documents (for example, microflows, pages).

2.2 Documents

Modules consist of documents, for example, microflows, pages or published or consumed services. These documents can be organized with folders.

In this sense, Module and Folder behave in the exact same way, and thus inherit from FolderBase: they both contain documents and folders.
