Reuse Data Type from different SWCV

Hi Gurus,

Happy new year!

I have a data type in SWCV 1. If I want to use this data type as an element in a new data type that I'm building in SWCV 2, is it possible? Is there a way to reuse existing data type in a different SWCV?

Thanks a lot.

    Hi Mark,

    Yes, you can reuse the data type of SWCV1 to SWCV2 but you need make the dependency between two SWCV.

    you can create dependency in SLD (clean way) or add the dependency in ESR (in SWC object).

    Hope it help.

    regards,

    Harish

    Hello Mark,

    besides the technical implementation (which you'll surely find out given Harish's advice) I recommend you this blog for further reading about how to structure your SWCV:

    Structuring Integration Repository Content - Part 1: Software Component Versions

    Basic message for your case would be that it might be worth considering implementation of some "Basic Objects" SWCV that holds all reusable data types.

    Regards,

    Jörg

    Hi Mark

    Create the s/w component SWCV2 and add dependencies in SLD which will be SWCV1.

    Step by step details are mentioned in the below link
