If you want to move data from your development database to the database used by your application server, you can do this using the startSQLRepository script. This script is described in detail in the ATG Repository Guide. To use this script, follow these steps:

  1. Set the DYNAMO_HOME environment variable to <ATG9dir>/home.

  2. In the Dynamo Administration UI, create a new ATG server that uses data sources that point to the development database. This is the default configuration for a new server.

  3. Use the startSQLRepository script to export data from the development database. Include in the startSQLRepository command the –sservername switch. For example, if the server you created in the previous step is called server1, you can export the data from all of the ATG repositories using this command:

    bin/startSQLRepository -s server1 -exportRepositories all all.xml

  4. Use the startSQLRepository script to import data from the XML file (created in the previous step) into the database used by your application server. Use the –s switch to specify a ATG server that is configured to use a ATG data source that points to that database. For example:

    bin/startSQLRepository –s server_name -import all.xml

    Note that the ATG data source must use an ATG-supported database driver. See the Oracle ATG Web Commerce Supported Environments Matrix document in the My Oracle Support knowledge base.

Oracle users: Before importing the demo data, set the useSetCharacterStream property of all SQL repository components to true so that non-8859 characters are displayed correctly. You can set this property in your localconfig/GLOBAL.properties file:


Microsoft SQL users: In order to run the ATG demos with a Microsoft SQL database, you must configure the database to be case-sensitive. See your MSSQL documentation for instructions. Note that the Quincy Funds demo is not supported for MSSQL.
