Pega 7 New Application Wizard Doesn't have a mechanism to introduce a Shared Layer like 6.2 What are the alternatives?
In New Pega 7 new Application Wizard there is no mechanism of introducing a Shared Layer like what 6.2 had. What are the alternative i just don't want to manually create it after generating the application.
You are right, in 6.2 sp2 there was a tab as 'Class structure' in application accelerator where we can add shared layers indicated by (*). In Pega 7 application express behaves as, for all Nodes after Leaf of ClassGroup means the literal string of shared layers. Only the namesapce will be included, not actual shared layers will be generated.
This is because you have got 'multitenancy' concept in Pega 7 to address the same requirement with better features, you need to install PRPC as multitenancy edition instead of standard edition, and later you can create tenant application which will have a shared app layer.
I think this can be treated as an enhancement request, however you can check below OOTB activities for the possibilities
