Using Object Management Workbench to Modify Table Data Classes
Copying an Environment to a New Environment
F98511 also stores the set of data sources for an environment after they have been
generated from the template.
The Installation Planner and Environment Director programs use F98511 when
prompting for data sources and when creating OCM mappings. When prompting for a
data source, the programs will first check the Data Source Master table (F98611) to see
whether it has already been defined. If so, Installation Planner and Environment
Director will ignore the default settings in F98511 and prompt based on the existing
data source definition.
You can edit the information in F98511 using the Data Source Templates By
Environment program (P98503). This program enables you to implement custom
environment naming standards and ease the creation of environments.
When creating a new environment, the system copies template records to create data
sources for the environment and replaces tokens in the properties with values for the
environment. Records with an environment value of *SHARED are used as a template
for shared data sources. This is used once to set up the shared data sources, whereas
new records with environment DEFAULT are created. Environment Director does not
prompt for shared data sources; they must be set up from Installation Planner. The
default set of shared data sources is system, object librarian, and data dictionary.
Records with an environment *ENV are used for new environment data sources.
Whenever a new environment is created, the *ENV records are copied. The
environment name replaces *ENV and tokens are replaced in order to receive the
actual data source name and default properties. The default set of environment data
sources is business data, control tables, central objects, and version. (The central
objects data source is also specified on Path Code Master.)
Records with an environment *LOGIC are used for logic and server map data sources.
These are set up when selecting an enterprise server.
184.108.40.206 Table Data Classes
The system uses a field in the Object Librarian Master table (F9860) to associate a table
with a data class. You can modify table data classes using either of these programs:
Object Management Workbench (P98220)
On Track Planning Setup (P98503)
Use this program to modify the data class for several tables at once.
220.127.116.11 Data Load
Environment Director can automate data load for an environment using UBEs. Cases
might exist, however, when you want to use third-party tools to load the data (that is,
DTS, BCP, Import/Export, CPYLIB). In these cases, the default data load can be
de-selected in the director.
8.10 Using Object Management Workbench to Modify Table Data Classes
This section discusses how to use Object Management Workbench (P98220) to modify
table data classes.
Modifying the data class does not affect existing OCM
mappings; the data class is only used when creating mappings for a
