Understanding the CDT interface

When the Configuration Deployment Tool starts, it prompts you to specify the details about your source and target databases to use during the session. After you have successfully connected to your source and target databases, the Deployment Explorer window appears.

CDT deployment explorer

The Deployment Explorer window displays the list of configuration groups, driver entities, and tables that can be deployed. The names you define for the source and target databases are displayed in the heading panel.

Each time you log into the Configuration Deployment Tool there is one instance of this window.

You can choose the configuration group or the driver entity that you want to compare between the source and target databases.

During the compare operation, the progress and the results of the comparison operation are displayed in the Comparison Results window and in the Status panel.
