Interfacing from an Editing Tool
Once an object has been checked-out for development, there are a whole range of editing tools which may be used. Deltanji provides a variety of ways to interface with these.
At the simplest level, an interface to Deltanji only has two requirements:
Firstly, a check must be made that the copy of the component which is being edited is the master copy, i.e. that it is checked out to the location.
Secondly, the date /time stamp must be updated when the component is saved. Deltanji keeps a record of the last changed date /time stamp for every object. When any change to a component is saved, Deltanji needs to be informed of this.
Interfaces are available from various common development products. Additionally, a number of function calls are provided which allow users to create an individual editor interface which is suited to their needs.
