Object Labels & Revisions

What are the best practices for object conversion?

Starting in IBM TRIRIGA Application Platform 3.5.3, you are encouraged to do a one-time conversion of the as-shipped TRIRIGA objects that you renamed and modified (typically with "cst"), back to the original as-shipped TRIRIGA object names (with "tri"). After you convert your cst objects back to tri objects, you can continue to modify the objects to suit your business needs and take advantage of the new object revisioning capabilities.

This wiki provides best-practice instructions for how to convert your existing cst objects of specific object types back to the tri objects from which they originated. After you complete the conversion, you then use the tri objects for future modifications and follow the new approach to manage future upgrades. For more information, see the Best Practices for Application Upgrade.

This one-time conversion process is very detailed and takes some time to complete. However, the more objects that you convert, the more that you decrease the amount of time that future application upgrades consume. Note that you can decide whether to convert your cst objects back to tri objects on a per object basis. You are not required to convert all your cst objects at one time.
