Recreating database tables from the exported table DDL
When an EAR file deploys, the target database is selected and a Table.ddl file is created that contains the SQL statements to create the tables for the bean.
The Table.ddl file is created by the Assembly Toolkit (ATK).
Here is a DB2 example of how to create tables using the Table.ddl file
- Extract the Table.ddl file from the container-managed bean enterprise bean JAR file into a working directory such as /tmp.
- cd /tmp
- Run the following DB2 commands:db2cmdA new
db2 connect dbname
db2 -tf Table.ddl
db2 disconnect all
