A application is engineerd and coded in Compact controlbuilder. These shall remain as standallone. But now these application schall become part of System 800xA without importing the Application into xA
As per my understanding PLC connect is needed with OPC Server of CCB.
How will the OPC Server know the structure of the CCB Application?

This should be done by creating PLC Genreric Control network in control strcuture. The signals in PLC Generic objects are mapped with Compact Control Builder through Signal Configuration aspect.
Refer 3BSE035041-510_en_800xA_5.1_PLC_Connect_Config.pdf on how to do the configuartion in detail.
After creating the PLC generic network , you have to change the driver from internal to PLC OPC da ... But the whole architecture of your application will not be recognized by the driver. you have to create the process objects & link each individual opc tag to signals under process object .
