The patch upgrades the repository to which it is applied, similar to the way the Application Upgrader upgrades the repository. The difference is that you do not have the opportunity to override the default conflict resolution rules. A conflict only occurs if an object property changes in both the source and the target repositories simultaneously.
For example, if you create a new Account field based on an extension column in the target repository, and then apply a patch from the source repository that includes the Account business component, the new field will not be overwritten in the target repository because the same new field has not been added in the source.
If you change the sort specification of the Account business component in the target repository, and the sort specification has not changed in the source, the new sort specification in the target will remain. However, if the sort specification has changed in both the source and the target, then a conflict arises for which a resolution is required.
