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.
