How to Create LDT File in Oracle Apps R12
An LDT file is a configuration file used to deploy components to different instances of an Oracle R12 Application. This file has two modes of operation. In one mode, the LDT file loads data from an existing LDT file. In the other mode, it uses the current instance’s config file. The first mode is the default setting, which is the recommended one. For more information, refer to the documentation for your particular Oracle apps version.
To translate an LDT file for an Oracle apps database, you need to use the FNDLOAD function. You can do this by selecting the “export” option from the FNDLOAD menu. Once you have the LDT file, you need to move it to your destination instance. The LDT file can contain any number of entities, including data. The file must be translated to fit the target system.
The FNDLOAD utility is a useful tool to move Metadata from one database to another. It works in download and upload modes. The tool will take data from a text file or database, and then convert it into a.ldt file. Once you’re done, you can upload or download the data to another database. FNDLOAD also lets you move Metadata from one database to another, and vice versa.
If you want to remove an Oracle application, you should uninstall the application through the OEL. It will remove all Oracle components, including DLLs. There are two other methods, but the latter method will result in your OS reinstalling. Alternatively, you can uninstall all Oracle products through the OEL. This method is easier and consistent. It is recommended to use Oracle Universal Installer instead.
The configuration file consists of a set of items that describe the data structure and access methods for an application. Each item in the configuration file is either an entity definition or a download or upload access method. For each entity type, you should define all three elements. The entity definition should appear before the download and upload methods. The three items need not be in a sequential order.
When creating an LDT file, you must specify the custom data you want to access. Using Oracle Apps’ LDTP API, you can use a configuration file to move Oracle Applications data from one database representation to another. The Generic Loader will read the configuration file and determine which data to access. Once you have selected the data you want to transfer, the Generic Loader will download it to a portable text file. Then, you can upload that file to any Oracle database.
