5.12.1 Control the Export and Import of Visual LANSA Components

You can control the exporting and importing of component information using the system flags *NOLADCOMP and *NOL4WCOMP.

Use of these flags should be considered carefully to avoid loss of component details.

The *NOLADCOMP flag allows you to controls the exporting and importing of component information between LANSA for the IBM i systems, giving you the option of exporting component information and then only importing it to selected systems.

The *NOL4WCOMP flag allows you to stop the exporting or checking out of component information from a LANSA for i to a Visual LANSA system. This flag also stops component information from being checked into a LANSA for i system from a Visual LANSA system.

Frameworks and groups are always exported and imported with the component details. Messages will be printed in the export and import logs when component details exist but are not included.

If no component details are imported, the existing component definitions in the target system are not changed.

The *NOLADCOMP and *NOL4WCOMP flags can be set using the Include Visual LANSA components in LANSA for i export/import and Include Web components in LANSA for i export/import options in Work with Export and Import Settings in the Review System Settings facility.
