Oracle Policy Automation 12 – Share Project Copy Quickly
There is a nice little extra feature in the new February 2016 edition of the Oracle Policy Modeler client application. Sometimes you just want to share a copy of a Project with someone, quickly, easily and without recourse to Hub interaction, versions or any of the more sophisticated stuff that might be on offer. So I was delighted to see that in the February 2016 release a new button had crept into the Oracle Policy Modeler user interface :
Clicking the button prompts the user for a folder to save the resulting Zip file to. And that’s all there is to it. The Zip file contains a copy of the entire Project – Word documents, compile xgen files, assets, interview file, test files, forms and all the rest. An excellent way of taking a backup of a Project too, if you need to.
This will be particularly useful to you if you are working through the examples in my book Getting Started with Oracle Policy Automation – so much so that we incorporated it into the current edition at relevant points. If you are looking for a book to help you become more familiar with the suite of Oracle Policy Automation tools ( Modeler, Hub and so on) then this book was written for yoou.
Very cool to see attention to detail in the features that are added as the product evolves.
