Identifying Database Objects from Uniface Models / Entities
Author: email@example.com (NTurner)
Hi, please forgive me if this has been asked before. I did search and didn't come up with anything. I'm new to uniface, and trying to get my head around one simple concept which doesn't seem to be very well documented anywhere (that I could find, at least). How does uniface map models and entities to the databases and tables that they represent? I can't see anywhere in the UDE to find out where a given entity lives in the database, and poking though the DICT metadata isn't helping either. I can see some of our models map via entity.asn which seems to redirect some models to other names, but doesn't contain all of them. I'm just really confused. If someone could walk me through the sequence of actions uniface takes when it needs to know, or show me an easy way to get the mapping of models to databases, entities to tables, it would be really helpful. Thanks. P.s. I'm on 9.5 if that makes any difference.
