Creating File Objects

With proper security rights, you can create a new file object, add it to a CSR, and move it to the assigned developer’s working directory. When you create a file object, you can either use a file template, or you can base it on an existing object.

In Stat, file templates are associated with particular file types. They help standardize development by defining in a reusable format the basic characteristics and structure of new file objects. This way, when you need to create a file object of a particular type, you can use an associated template as a starting point. This helps enforce adherence to development standards and saves time.

(Optional) In the Assigned To field, select a different developer.
(Optional) In the File Type field, select a different file type.
If basing the new file object on an existing object, click the Browse button in the Existing Object field. Then in the Select File dialog box, locate and select the file object you want to use.
In the New Object Name field, enter a name for the new object. Then click Create.
Click Yes for each instance of the object that you want to add to the CSR. Click No for each instance of the object that you do not want to add.

Stat adds each instance of the new object that you selected to the CSR. At this point, the file object exists only in the working directory of the assigned developer but is not yet archived. For more information, see Creating Archive Sets (Generic Applications) .

Editing File Objects

If you want to edit a file object associated with a CSR, you can open it directly from Stat with whichever program your operating system uses to open files of that type. When selecting a file object to edit, remember that you can choose from different versions of the same object. These include the versions that exist in users’ working directories as well as all the source file locations defined for any of the environments on the migration path of the CSR. However, because source file locations do not include drive information, Stat cannot open a file object from the same location in which it resides for a selected environment. Instead, Stat copies the file to the file download directory. For Windows 7/8 it's C:\Program Data\Quest Software\Stat\temp.

It is important to remember that when you edit an object, you are editing only the version of the object that exists in the particular environment you selected. The same object may exist in other environments, and these versions are not affected by any changes you make to the edited version. If you want all your environments to contain the same version of an object, you have to migrate that object to each environment. For more information on, see Running a Migration (Generic Applications) .

Comparing and Merging Objects (Generic Applications)

After adding objects to a CSR, you can use Stat’s 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:

For Oracle Applications, you can use the Object Comparison Wizard to compare the setup and developer type objects contained in non-merged patch zip files.

For file (non-developer) type 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 of 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.

You can select the object(s) you want to compare in one of two ways: either directly from Stat, in which case you can select any source location that your user class rights give you access to, or you can open the wizard from a CSR, in which case you can select just the source locations associated with that CSR, such as the environments on the associated migration path, archive sets defined in the CSR, or in the case of Oracle Applications, patches associated with the CSR.

For detailed instructions on using Stat’s object comparison tools, see Object Tools and Wizards .

Viewing your Object Environment (Generic Applications)

The Object Management tab displays information pertaining to object development within your generic application. 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 (Generic Applications) and Running a Migration (Generic Applications) .

The 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.
