The moment of live operation. Runtime is the point when a software program springs into action to perform a task. In a service-oriented environment, applications typically assemble the components they need at runtime to make sure they have the most up-to-date data and functionality. Known as 'delayed binding' this differs from previous generations of software, when developers pre-integrated as many components as possible at build time and then distributed the resulting software for later installation.
