The DataServer Tutorial : Managing server attributes
 

Managing server attributes

In OpenEdge Release 11, the DataServer for Oracle is enhanced to enable you to define foreign RDBMS constraint definitions within the meta schema of your OpenEdge database for use in migrating your database to a foreign data source. Once migrated to the foreign data source, constraint definitions can be pulled back into your OpenEdge schema holder.
To achieve this, OpenEdge, provides a submenu for the Oracle DataServer Utilities for creating constraint definitions. The following figure shows the Server Attributes submenu.
Figure 10. Server Attributes submenu
From the Server Attributes submenu, you can access dialog boxes that provide an interface to create, view, and maintain server attributes, and define constraint definitions applied to the data and indexes of the foreign database within your OpenEdge schema holder. The dialog boxes accessed from the Server Attributes submenu are as follows:
*View/Maintain Foreign Constraints — Use the View/Maintain Foreign ConstraintDefinitions dialog box, shown in the following figure , to define and delete constraint definitions as well as view constraint definition properties.

*Activate/Deactivate Constraints — Use the Activate/Deactivate Constraint Definitions dialog box, shown in the following figure , to activate or deactivate constraint definitions you defined.
