8. Moving LANSA Objects between LANSA Systems and Partitions

How are objects moved from one partition to another, or from one system to another?

How do you move a group of fields in the data dictionary, but not the whole dictionary?

What happens to the validations or field help text?

How do you move a LANSA file definition and it's associated objects?

Moving objects in an integrated development environment is more than a simple copy of files and programs from A to B. You must not only consider the "copy from", but also the "copy to". In LANSA, you move objects using the "import/export" facility.

To understand the import/export facility, review the following:

8.1 Basic Objects in LANSA

8.2 What is the Export/Import Facility?

8.3 How does Export/Import Work?
