What is the ODF Comparison Utility and how do I use it?

Each Oracle Applications product is made up of one or more building
blocks. For example, Journal Entry is one building block of Oracle
General Ledger. Each building block has an ODF (Object Description File) that
describes its tables, indexes, views and sequences. Several
phases of Autoinstall use the ODF Comparison Utility (adodfcmp) to
create the needed objects.

Usage: adodfcmp keyword=value [,keyword=value,...]
Valid Keywords
- Filename of ODF file that adodfcmp should read
- ORACLE username/password to be compared with ODF file
changedb - Change database to eliminate the differences?
(Default No)

- File name of log file (Default adodfcmp.log)
sizingfactor - Sizing factor (Default 100)

- Tablespace to store tables
indextspace - Tablespace to store indexes

- What do you want to compare? (Default objects)
- Userid to grant to
(Default NOBODY)

- Filename of a parameter file (if any) (Default NONE)
listextra - Report extra objects? (Default No)
listmatch - Report matching objects? (Default Yes)
listmissing - Report missing objects? (Default Yes)
batchsize - How many rows to update at a time

(Default 1000)
oldviews - Rename, drop or replace existing views (Default rename)
You can specify command-line parameters either by position or by

To run the command, first change your current directory to the location
of the .odf file. This is located in the install/odf directory under the
product top directories.

cd $FND_TOP/install/odf
$ adodfcmp odffile=afform.odf userid=applsys/fnd changedb=yes

Changes in ODFCMP for Release 10.
o Introduction
The ODF Comparison utility or ODFCMP as it was known in release 9, is used
to compare objects in a database against an Object Description File

(.odf). The ODF Comparison Utility reports:
o Objects missing from the account (ORACLE username).
o Extra objects in the account (not listed in the ODF file).
o Detailed differences between an object in the account and an object

of the same name in the file.

The ODF Comparison Utility also reports and optionally executes the SQL
statements to fix these differences. You can review the SQL statements
before actually executing them.

The AutoInstall program uses ODF Comparison to install and upgrade

"XDF is a common scientific data format based on XML and general mathematical
principles that can be used throughout the scientific disciplines. It includes these key
features: hierarchical data structures, any dimensional arrays merged with coordinate
information, high dimensional tables merged with field information, variable resolution,
easy wrapping of existing data, user specified coordinate systems, searchable ASCII
meta-data, and extensibility to new features/data formats. [As of 2003-06] the XDF
project supported two versions of XDF: a 'stable' and 'development' version..."
"An XDF document contains N-dimensional arrays of data with associated spatial
information. It is designed to be both an interchange format for scientific data and to be
of archival quality. Multidimensional tables and scalar or vector fields are represented in
a consistent way and become thoroughly self describing. Axial information is well
described so that the space in which each part of the data structure resides is fully
described. This means that XDF provides a consistent way to hold spectra with their
wavelength scales, images with coordinate axes, vector fields with unitDirection, data
cubes in complicated spaces, tables with column headers, and series of tables with each
table having a unique name."

What is the .odf file, what its work?

Odf stands for Object Description Files.
These files are used to create tables & other database objects.
You can find these odf files under each Product_top/patch/115/odf.
You can run this odf file using the command line utility: adodfcmp.


The FNDLOAD utility also know as the Generic loader in Oracle Applications is a
concurrent program that can move data across applications instances using database and
text file representations.
The FNDLOAD downloads the data from the database using a oracle predefined
configuration file (.lct) and stores the data in a converted data file (.ldt).Similarly while
using FNDLOAD to upload data, the loader uploads the data from the data file created by
the previous download based on the configuration file.
The FNDLOAD does the download and upload based on the instructions given the
configuration files (.lct), these are predefined by oracle and can be located at

Oracle currently supports the migration of the following types of data using FNDLOAD
Printers / Print queues / Executables Printers / Print queues / Executables. Roles /
Responsibilities / Forms Roles / Responsibilities / Forms.
Menus / Users / Request Sets Menus / Users / Request Sets.

Adsplice is the one of the adutility, By using this we can register the offcycle products that are released after basereleses.( for example if we are working in 11.5.9 then if any new product is interduced in 11.5.10 by that time we can register the new product from 11.5.9 to 11.5.10)

Adsplice logfile is located under APPL_TOP/admin/SID
When you run adsplice, accept the defaults and you will see lines like the following:
Please enter the directory where your AD Splicer control file is located.
