Copying a Directory or Business Component

Copying a Directory or Business Component

You can copy a business components directory to a different location in the same tree. You can also copy a business components directory to a different repository folder or repository. Copies of objects from other repository folders do not inherit changes you make to the original object.
To copy a directory or business component:
  1. In the Designer, connect to the source database and open the folder from which you want to copy the directory or business component.
  2. In the Navigator, select the object you want to copy.
  3. Click Edit > Copy, or press Ctrl+C.
  4. If you want to copy the object to a different repository, connect to the target repository.
  5. If you want to copy the object to a different folder, open the destination folder.
  6. In the Navigator, select the business components directory location where you want to paste the directory or business component.
  7. Click Edit > Paste, or press Ctrl+V.
    You can copy a directory or business component by connecting to a repository and pressing the control key while you drag the directory or business component into the business components node in the destination folder.
