[Teneo] Mechanism for updating the ecore-model and the database automatically?! [message #77836] Sat, 31 March 2007 10:41 Go to next message

Hi again,

I just wondered if there is a possibility to update the ecore-model (and
therefore using a new hiber-mapping file) and to let Teneo update the
database, so that the stored objects remain valid. Of course this can only
work, if the new ecore-file and the old one are compatible (e.g. adding a
new field to an element).

My first idea was to export the datastore, make the changes manually in die
xml-file, and then import the datastore. But maybe there is another
mechanism?!

Regards,
Markus

Hi Markus,
Both Hibernate and Jpox will automatically add new fields, tables and database constraints when
Teneo is initialized. All within a certain reasonable set of schema changes ofcourse.
Note that:
- The database schema update adds fields but does not set their default value (as far as I know). So
if you add a non-nullable field then you have to set the default value separately.
- There is an option in Teneo to disable the update of the database schema but as a default the
database schema will be updated.

gr. Martin
