Process of Extending the Siebel Schema
To extend the Siebel Schema, perform the following tasks:
- Check out and lock the project to which the table being extended belongs. In most cases, this is Table Common.
If you want to import data into the new column using Enterprise Integration Manager (EIM), you must check out the project to which the appropriate interface table belongs. For more information, see the sections on EIM in the Using Siebel Tools guide.
- Update the logical schema definition in the development environment using Siebel Tools. This process is the same on z/OS as on other platforms and is documented in the Using Siebel Tools and Developing and Deploying Siebel Business Applications guides.
NOTE: Make sure that you select the check box on the Database tab of the Development Tools Options dialog under the View menu. This option validates the objects' compliance with DB2 for z/OS and sizing conventions.
- Apply the physical schema extensions to the development database:
- Update and test configuration changes that apply to the extensions.
