Chapter 2. Who should read this manual?

This manual is aimed at developers and provides the information they require to integrate their applications into the SME Server platform. The manual discusses the key concepts of the SME Server such as the configuration database, configuration file templates and the events and actions model which differentiate the SME Server from other Linux distributions.

This manual is not a system administration or system tweaking guide for a particular release. Instead it provides examples of SME Server development best practice. This manual is also useful for SME Server system administrators to explain how the SME Server works "under the covers".
