Combining Snapshot files

Postby Larrybanana » Wed May 16, 2012 12:56 pm

We are looking to build modularity into our product.
Each module would supply its own snapshot containing its database schema for its tables etc.

Is is possible to aggregate several snapshot files together and then update the database structure?

Thanks for your post.
The snapshot files are an independent representation of a database, so you can't really join them together in to "one big database".
You could merge the individual snapshots together into one using something like winzip/zlib, to ease deployment, but your code would still need to extract and process each one separately at runtime.
