Orchestration Layer No Longer Part of OS 11?

Hi guys,

I understand that the orchestration layer of the 4LC is no longer needed for OutSystems version 11 or newer. I'm curious to know why? Any ideas or documentation I can read on this?

Hi Asha,


That is a very good question which is answered in this video at 22:03.

Basically, the idea about the orchestration was to avoid lateral dependencies between screens (imagine when you have a portal that has links for backoffice and links for your order management system). Now screen references are a weak reference so you don't need that layer anymore because that's no longer an issue (in the example I gave, your portal would be in front-end layer (light blue) referencing (weak reference) to the Backoffice and OrderManagement screens (also in front-end layer).


Hope it helps.

Hey João,

Thanks for the explanation. Makes sense to me!!

I see that this video is regarding reactive apps, I just want to check, does the same apply to traditional web apps?

Hi Asha,


The video explains it very well, I am glad it helped.

Yes, it is the same for Traditional Web Apps, the point is really screen dependencies are now weak dependencies.
