Comparing 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 Archive Sets 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 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.

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 generic applications, this node includes all the file 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.

The Environment Info table displays the following information:

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

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 (Generic Applications) .

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.

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

For file objects, the column displays the environment as well as the exact file location from which the archive was taken.

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