Download File Objects

To download a single file object from environment, select the object in the list of objects and click Download.

Editing File Objects

You can open file objects directly from Quest® Stat® for editing purposes. Stat opens the object in whichever program your operating system uses to open files of that type.

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. Because you can edit only one version of the object at a time, the changes you make to the object in one environment do not affect the version in the other environment. 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 migrating, see Documenting Migrations and Process Requests (Oracle Applications) .

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 is C:\Program Data\Quest Software\Stat\temp.

Comparing 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 Archive Sets 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 Archive Sets 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.
