1 - About

This section goes over the programmatically manipulation of the repository.

2.1 - Whole repository

The programmatic process is generally straight forward:

  • you transform the binary repository to a text file representation (Generally an XML)
  • you modify it
  • and you create the binary repository back.

This process can also be applied on an object level:

  • you create a text file that represent one or several whole objects in your repository (such as a connection, a logical table,…)
  • you can the apply this text file against the binary repository to modify it.
