Trying to include a $SEQ file in a uar.
Author: email@example.com (Iain Sharp)
We use a $SEQ file to store the changes to the structure of the database (it's effectively a table of sql scripts to be run when updating a database). We send patches to the system out as incremental .uar files (So the main release is main_system.uar, then patch1.uar, patch2.uar etc each containing just the changed programs etc). I am trying to get to a state where we can include the 'latest' .seq file (and it's overflow file) in the patch*.uar. It seemed that $res would do this for me, but apparently not. If I include the following bits in the asn file. [FILES] sye_update.seq=$res:sye_update.seq osye_update.seq=$res:osye_update.seq [ENTITIES] ;SYE_UPDATE.SYSTEM $seq:sye_update.seq SYE_UPDATE.SYSTEM $res:sye_update.seq it appears that a $fileproperties can find and use the sye_update.seq to get the file modification date, but a read on SYE_UPDATE.SYSTEM cannot. Does anyone have a technique for releasing 'static data' that is easy to maintain, and applicable to resources settings? Iain
