About Schema Extension Tasks
The following tasks must be performed to extend the Siebel schema:
- Check out and lock the project to which the table being extended belongs. In most cases this is Newtable.
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 Using Siebel Tools.
- Update the logical schema definition in the development environment using Siebel Tools. This works as on other platforms and is documented in Using Siebel Tools and Developing and Deploying Siebel eBusiness Applications.
NOTE: Make sure that you have selected the check box on the Database tab of the Development Tools Options dialog under the View menu. This validates the objects' compliance with DB2 UDB for z/OS and OS/390 and sizing conventions.
- Apply the physical schema extensions to the development database:
- Update and test configuration changes that apply to the extensions.
