How to Generate an Application Model
To generate an application model, the repository version must have been exported. If the repository is a Production Version, the XML repository where it takes its model from must have been exported.
To generate an application model:
The Repository Versions window opens.
The Exported On field contains the date and time of the last export.
The following question appears:
Generating the Export Model overwrites the existing model, if any, including your adaptations.
Export Model generated.
Then, the underlying business objects and tables are deleted. This implicitly removes the model.
Next, the export model is generated, consisting of business areas, business objects, and application tables. This model is imported, and the Model Generated field is set to the current date and time.
Then, just before commit, the Export Model is regenerated and written to file. For example to:
C:\XML Repository Manager\models\TRAVEL8_PROD_model.xml
For this, the Export Model View is used.
Finally, the Export Model field is updated to the contents of the generated file.
