Cloning is the feature in dm Server 2.0 which copies certain bundles and libraries into a scoped application (that is, a PAR or a scoped plan) as described in the roadmap.
The support for cloning in dm Server has progressed steadily over the last few sprints. The fundamental mechanisms were in place in M1: cloning may be triggered:
- manually by specifying the directive sharing:=clone on import-library or import-bundle
- automatically when a scoped application fails to resolve because of a uses constraint violation.
