Data Dictionary Overview

Since one Data Dictionary (DD) is recommended for all JD Edwards EnterpriseOne software environments, changing the data dictionary in one environment (such as Development) also affects other environments, e.g. Production and Prototype. 
If data dictionary is implemented by Environment, it must be implemented by Pathcode because data dictionary specs are created per pathcode.
If multiple environments share the same path code, they must also share the same data dictionary.

When a change is made to the data dictionary using the Dictionary Design Application (P92001), the change affects the Data Dictionary master tables which are on the Enterprise Server. A change to a data dictionary item includes changes to the description, row description, column title, selection to allow row security, display decimals for the QTYINV Class and QNTY data item, changes to error message text or level, etc.  Any data dictionary changes of these types require that the data dictionary be deployed.

A local copy of data dictionary specifications is maintained and used within an environment whenever data dictionary information is needed by interactive or batch applications. When an  interactive or batch application is running, DD item specifications are installed just-in-time (JITI) from the master tables on the enterprise server to the local copy of the DD specifications.  This JITI occurs only once per data item when the item is referenced within the application. Any subsequent changes made to a previously referenced DD item do not JITI again. When making data dictionary changes, it is therefore necessary to deploy them to verify that all workstations and servers have the current and correct information. 

For more information on the Data Dictionary within EnterpriseOne, refer to E1: DD: Overview of EnterpriseOne Data Dictionary (Doc ID 1267422.1).

This document details how to deploy Data Dictionary changes within EnterpriseOne. 


This document is intended for the Data Dictionary System Administrator who will be deploying Data Dictionary changes.
