Identifying application schema elements
You can use the Application Schema Explorer to locate schema elements that do not exist in the physical database but rather are created at runtime by program execution. These application schema elements include:
*Temp tables
*Fields defined in temp tables
Application schema elements appear in the Application Schema Explorer if they are defined in either or both of two places:
*code that is indexed in an OpenEdge Meta Catalog accessible to your workspace. The Application Schema Explorer includes available schema elements from all of your local catalogs and any master catalogs that you link to. (See the OpenEdge Meta Catalog help volume for more information.)
*Your application model database. (The Application Schema Explorer does not support the display of models stored in XMI format.)
Using the Application Schema Explorer
1. To open the Application Schema Explorer, select Window > Show View. In the Show View window, expand the OpenEdge Tools for Business Logic folder and select Application Schema Explorer.
2. The tree in the Application Schema Explorer has two expandable top-level nodes, Catalogs and Models. Expand these nodes to display nodes for your available catalogs and models.
3. Expand any catalog or model node and its sub-nodes to see schema elements that are available in each category.
4. To determine the location of an element, use the information in the node labels and in the property viewer in the right pane.
5. After locating an element in the Application Schema Explorer, you can reuse in a component diagram by copying it from:
*The code Outline view for catalog-based elements.
*The model Outline view for model-based elements.
