RE: Automation Designer question

Matt,

That was my thought originally, but I simply cannot find where to do
that. If I right click on the app and choose Properties, I get an App
Properties box which allows me to rename the app, but nothing else.
I’m running Toad 11.0.0.116. How does one get to a place where the
properties can be edited?

Roger,

Thanks. I had thought of renaming the alias in the TNS file. That
would certainly work, and I’ll do that if need be, but I am hoping to
learn something and do this in a better way if I can. Thanks for the
suggestion.

Hey John;

Sounds to me like you need someone to perform an impact analysis on the affected
applications.

Before you can decide which of the many possibly solutions are the best way, you
would need to have that impact analysis performed. The primary question to be
asked would be:

In what ways does App X connect to the database?

For each of the affected apps of course.

After all, you could find someone offer a really elegant solution but also find
that once implemented your production apps no longer work. You probably want to
avoid that scenario I’d imagine.

Once you know the various ways the apps connect to the database, only then can
you end up deciding which solution(s) will work best in your situation. With
multiple apps connecting in multiple ways, you may require the implementation of
multiple solutions.
