Updating temp-table labels and OpenEdge Service Objects

Posted by bheavican on 20-Nov-2014 09:31

We updated our temp-table field labels and re-generated our web service.  The .json file is updated with the new labels.  We then tried to update our OpenEdge Service Objects in Rollbase with the new .json file but the label changes are not picked up.  Is there a way for the label changes to be picked up or do we have to manually update them in Rollbase?

The ‘merge’ of a new JSDO Catalog against previously imported Objects is fairly simplistic.  The ‘re-import’ will add new Fields, and remove deleted Fields, but where Fields exist they are not updated on an attribute-by-attribute basis.   In part this is because you could have edited the Field definition in Rollbase to intensionally modify it for Rollbase displays.   But the side-effect is that you can’t use the JSDO Catalog to update field attributes.
