There is a conceptual separation between design-time and runtime phases of the development life-cycle. During the design-time phase, the source artifacts are created and managed within the isolated developer’s area - workspace. When the developer is ready with a given feature, he/she has to publish the project so that the application artifacts become available for the other users.

The meaning of “available” depends on the type of artifact. For example, for scripting services this is the registration of a public end-point, while for web and wiki content, it is just the access to the artifacts them self, etc.

Publishing action is accessible from the context menu in the Workspace explorer.

The space within the Repository, where all the public artifact are placed, is called Registry.
