All converted objects are placed into a modification library. The name of this modification library depends on the following:
If a modification library was defined with the Natural Engineer product on the server, all modified objects are placed into the defined modification library, which may have any valid library name. If you want to change (or delete) the name of the modification library, you have to do this with the Natural Engineer product on the server. It is not possible to do this using NaturalONE. See also the description of the Application Properties in the Natural Engineer Application Management documentation.
If a modification library was not defined with the Natural
Engineer product on the server, all modified objects are placed into a library
which has the same name as the library containing the original objects, but
which has an additional "X" as the last character.
If the library name is already eight characters long, the last character is
removed and replaced with the "X". For example, when
the name of the original library is
HOSPITAL, the name of the
modification library is
To create objects with modified application code
In the Natural Server view, select one of the following:
one or more programs, subprograms, subroutines or helproutines,
one or more group folders with the names Programs, Subprograms, Subroutines and/or Helproutines, or
one or more libraries containing the above-mentioned object types.
Invoke the context menu and choose ALT+SHIFT+C).(or press
The conversion process is immediately started on the Natural server. During the conversion, the Natural Engineer console in the Console view shows diagnostic messages. There you can see which objects have been converted, which statements or objects have not been converted, and which objects require manual intervention.
When the conversion has been completed, new objects containing the modified application code are shown in the Natural Server view, in the modification library. They are not downloaded to the Eclipse workspace (Navigator view or Natural Navigator view).
If the modification library is new, you may have to refresh the user libraries manually in the Natural Server view so that the modification library is shown.
The following sample shows an expanded modification library:
When you display an object in the Natural Server view using the source editor, a temporary project is created in the Eclipse workspace. The following is a sample Natural program containing converted code:
