Forum OpenACS Q&A: 4.5 data model update scripts.

Posted by Jon Griffin on
I wish to reiterate that since we are in beta, if you change the datamodel you NEED to have an update script.

There are many changes happening and data models are getting changed with no doc. This makes it very difficult to update your system. APM allows for this automatically if the file-update.sql is available.

Yes, let's try to do this.  One of the goals of holding off on our beta release was to hold off on having to make update scripts.  Now that we have a beta release we're on the hook.

Having said that I may've been guilty myself when applying patches or other fixes (feel free to ping me if you find that to be true, and I'll squeeze in time to make an update script).
