Sometimes it is needed to verify or re-create a Database Object, which is created via a odf- or xdf-file.

In the earlier Releases of the E-Business-Suite the odf-files (Object Description File) was introduced to create DB Objects like tables, synonyms, views, Indexes, etc using the appropriate AD-Utility. These odf-files are available in Release 10.7, 11.0.3, 11i and R12. But the odf-files are more and more replaced by the xdf-files, starting with the Release 11i and further implemented in R12.

To verify and create Database Objects, defined in a odf-File you are using the Utility adodfcmp, which is located under the $AD_TOP/bin.

To verify and create Database Objects, defined in a xdf-File you are using the Java Utility FndXdfCmp, which is located under the $JAVA_TOP/oracle/apps/fnd/odf2.
