Object dependencies

When you define or import an object, it is stored in the metadata repository and is available for reuse by other objects. Typically, the objects that you define exist in a specific object hierarchy. That is, objects:

  • use objects below them in the hierarchy
  • are used by objects above them in the hierarchy

To help you manage the interlinked network of objects, the software provides the Object Dependencies Browser that displays the object dependencies for a selected object.

The following table lists the objects that use and are used by Transformation-Rules.
