What's the difference between App-V and Remote Published Apps?

I bought Citrix XenApp thinking all I would need is Windows Server 2012 RDP/remote published apps and publish it on citrix as well but i'm seeing App-V stuff on citrix.

Anyone familiar with how to configure RDP, Published Apps, and Citrix XenApp? - I'm old school Terminal Services and Metaframe nFuse... so much more bells and whistles now.... it's so dam confusing.

Any input would be much appreciated.

Remote published apps run on the server and the GUI is presented on the client.

App-V apps are packaged applications that are self-contained, sent to the client, and run ON that client. So where the processes run, what memory they use, CPU, network, etc...the two are very different and address different needs.
