Managing definition bases

TOM stores object and set definitions in definition bases. You can create multiple definition bases to use in different situations, such as:
  • A temporary definition base to use when making a large number of changes before moving the changes over into a production environment.

  • A disaster-recovery definition base to quickly establish a functioning system.

  • Alternative definition bases to use for weekend activity or other recurring requirements.

The TDEFBS view lists the status of all the definition bases in TOM, both object definition bases and calendar definition bases. From this view, you can manage the TOM definition bases: add new definition bases, edit existing definition bases, activate or switch to another definition base. When you switch to another definition base, you can create, edit and save objects to a another definition base while the system continues to use the current definition base.

To access the TDEFBS view, enter TDEFBS on the COMMAND line or place the cursor on the Object/Calendar Bases menu item from the TOM Easy Menu, and press Enter.

To activate a different definition base or administer or edit another definition base, perform one of the following actions:

  • Enter ACT in the CMD field to activate a different object definition base or calendar definition base.

  • Enter SWT in the CMD field to switch to (administer or edit) a different object definition base or calendar definition base.

For calendar definition bases, you can hyperlink on the name to see the calendar entries. Place the cursor on an entry in the Base Name column, and then press Enter.

The TCALENT view is displayed.
