I would like to know what is the difference between BMIDE 4 tier and 2 tier?
And if there is a difference how to decide which bmide to use?
Is there any documentation that would clarify this doubt?
I am currently using TC 11.2.1.
BMIDE 2Tier or 4Tier is applicable for the environments where you want to perform the hot deployment( It is a deployment process where we do changes in BMIDE save the datamodel and deploy to corresponding environment using BMIDE) . Hot deployment is a quick way of deploying your changes in to environment.
Based on the kind of the connection that BMIDE can establish with Teamcenter for deployment it's classified so.
Generally for a local development environments i feel it's better to go with BMIDE 2Tier.
BMIDE standalone is other option where the changes done in BMIDE need to be packaged and then perform the update of existing template or browse the feature from TEM for deployment.
