Comparing and Merging Objects (Oracle Applications)

After adding objects to a CSR, you can use the Quest® Stat® object comparison tools to compare the definition of two objects or two versions of the same object. The object comparison tools can be used to compare objects in the following ways:

In the case of data objects, you can use the Object Comparison Wizard to compare two different objects as long as they are of the same object type. Also, for data objects that do not contain blob data, you can use the Object Merge Wizard to combine the two versions into a new object definition. The merged object definition is then automatically archived on a new Stat-generated archive set. This way, you can keep your data objects updated and synchronized across environments.

For file objects, you can use the File Comparison Tool to compare the contents of two file objects and easily identify differences. Like the Object Merge Wizard, this tool also enables you to merge the two objects by overwriting sections of one file with sections from the other file. The newly merged versions can then be saved to the assigned developer’s working directory and later included in a new archive set.

For setup objects, you can view the differences between two versions of an object, either in an archive set, in an environment, or between the two.

Developer objects are a type of file object and consist of form (fmb), form library (pll), and report (rdf) objects. If you have configured Stat to support developer object comparison, you can view the differences between developer objects in an archive set, environment, or in any combination of the two. Unlike with other file objects, however, Stat does not support merging developer objects.

Viewing your Object Environment (Oracle Applications)

The Object Management tab displays information pertaining to object development within Oracle® Applications environments. From here, you can view information regarding all the environments in a migration path as well as create and migrate object archives. For more information, see Creating Archive Sets (Oracle Applications) and Documenting Migrations and Process Requests (Oracle Applications) .

This Object Management tab is divided in two sections. The left section is a tree view showing all of the possible groupings of the information that appears on the right section of the tab. The tree allows you to navigate through the objects associated with the CSR as well as all the archives created for the CSR.

The buttons located on the top of the tap page, Environment Info and Archive Sets, control what type of information you see in the right section of the tab. When you click Environment Info, the window displays object information. When you click Archive Sets, the window displays object archive information.

The Tree Structure

The highest-level tree node is the CSR node. When you select this node, all of the objects associated with the CSR appear in the Environment Info table. Second level tree nodes include All Objects, Migration Path, and Developers. For Oracle Applications, the All Objects node includes all the file objects, data objects, schema objects, and patch objects associated with the CSR.

The Migration Path node sorts objects by the environments on the migration path. The first node is the Base environment, the second is the Development environment, and the remaining nodes correspond to the additional environments on the migration path. When you select an environment node, the list shows the objects in that environment. The Developers node sorts objects according to their assigned developer. When you select a developer node, the list on the right shows only the objects assigned to that developer.

The Archive Sets button becomes activated when you select any object or developer tree node. If the Archive Sets toggle button is active and you select one these nodes, the Environment Info toggle button automatically becomes active. This is because archive set information is not specific to these nodes and therefore cannot be filtered.

Click Refresh Tree to refresh the tree view if there are changes to the CSR, such as an object reassigned to a different developer or a newly added object.

Environment Info Table

When you click Environment Info, the Environment Info table appears in the right section of the tab page. This table displays information concerning versions of each object residing in each environment. Click the column headings to sort the rows of information in the Environment Info table.


Indicates the class of object. Object classes include PeopleSoft proprietary, data, schema, and file.


Indicates if the object is locked or reserved for the particular environment. If the object is exclusively locked by this CSR then the Status column displays a lock icon. If the object is reserved for the particular database then the column displays a reservation icon.


Indicates the type of object.


Displays the name of the object. In the case of a file object, such as a COBOL program, this is the file name.


The environment in which the object resides. For each file object in the CSR, the Environment Info table displays an additional row to represent the archiving and migrating activities in the user’s working directories. For these rows, the environment column displays the value “Work.”


Indicates whether or not the object has been modified. For more information on this field, see CSR Object Documentation (Oracle Applications) .

Assigned To

Displays the user name of the Stat user assigned to the object and therefore has the lock on the object. This does not have to be the same user who owns the CSR, and it can vary by object and database.

Current Archive ID

Indicates the current archive of the object in the specified environment. This value can come from the following types of activities:

Current Archive Set Source

The column displays the environment as well as the exact file location from which the archive was taken.

Last Updated

The last date and time that changes were made to this object in Stat.
