DEFINING APPLICATIONS

       An application is defined in amanda.conf(5) as follows:

       define application-tool $appconfigname {
          plugin "$pluginname"
          property "$PROPERTY_NAME" "$PROPERTY_VALUE"
          ...
       }
       and then referenced in a dumptype as

       define dumptype $dumptypename {
          ...
          program "APPLICATION"
          application "$appconfigname"
       }

       Application properties, like Amanda configuration parameters, are
       insensitive to case, and - (dash) and _ (underscore) may be used
       interchangeably.

       See the individual plugin documentation for properties applicable to
       each plugin.
