Increasing the size of IBA Strings.

Increasing the size of IBA Strings.

I need to increase the size of IBA strings from 500 to 4000. I can do this manually, but I need it to be done via the build process. We are using BIF with compdef.xml files to do our automatic builds. Does anybody know how to specify this in the compdef.xml file?

The manual steps are:

1. Create a valueModel.properties file in \wtCustom\wt\iba\value\, and add entries:

StringValue.value.UpperLimit=4000

StringValue.value2.UpperLimit=4000

2. Run:

ant -f bin\tools.xml custom_column -Dgen.input=wt.iba.value.*

This updates the .ser files.

3. Run:

UpgradeManager -cs (to compare the schema)

4. Run the compare schema results to alter the table.

5. Restart everything.

When the build runs automatically, the properties file gets put in wtCustom as it's supposed to, but the .ser files do not get recreated and the database columns stay the same.

Any suggestions?
