I've just started to use the new ODME IDE, and I would like to know if it is still possible to create an ODM application in which the default scenario is a given .DAT file, as it was in previous versions (just a quick prototype).
So far from reading the documentation, I've found out that doing the converse is easy: that is, generating a .DAT file from the ODM scenario.
I know that probably it has something to do with the Data Source Explorer in the Data perspective of the IDE, but I haven't figured out how to do that so far.

maybe in doc:http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/odmeinfo/v3r4/index.jsp
you could have a look at
IBM ILOG ODM Enterprise Developer Edition V3.4 > ODM Enterprise User Manual > Basic usage > Creating an ODM Enterprise application > Creating a new ODM Enterprise project in the IDE
where you will see

Re: Creating a simple ODM 3.4 application from a .mod and a .dat file2011-03-07T16:26:38Z in response to AlexFleischerHello
Recreating the ODME project with an OPL project simply creates the new .mod file. It will be mapped with the data structure (datamodel.odmam) that you manually create or import from an existing DB schema ;
Symetrically, suppose you have an existing OPL model, then you create your ODME project and then reverse engineer this OPL model (in the Data perspective) so that now the datamodel fits your OPL structure.
In both cases however, it seems to me that it is not possible anymore to fill the data in ODM with a simple .dat file that you already created. Otherly said, the mapping OPL-DataModel is done using the .mod file. But there is no direct way to inject data files from an original .dat file directly into the datamodel using a datasource since we have only CSV, SQL or Custom Data Source.
Could the support confirm or infirm my statement?
