The Barista® Application Framework is both an application development and runtime environment. This document focuses on the end user or reseller and describes the runtime functionality that Barista brings to applications built within the framework.

The examples presented here feature AddonSoftware® by Barista, but can be applied to virtually any Barista-built application.
