    just finished reading this book. Unfortunately i did not find section covering release process recommendations nor metadata aspect of ODI source objects (projects,package, interfaces, models). ODI SDK usage for export/import is obvious choice for automation for this task, but for example KM import currently is limited to DUPLICATION model only, while if source objects not released together with executables then metadata source remain only one - development environment :(.

    In general seems like oracle is not giving explicit recommendations how to organize release process for odi artifacts, however overall impression is that it is assumed that development is grouped in small ODI projects but to test are released only odi scenarios, which are like "black boxes" for SQA even with generated code in logs. also huge number of ODI projects not grouped in ODI studio.

    Could you please comment/recommend how to release with metadata in mind (production metadata)

    thank you

    Hi Andris

    Christophe also has been blogging some useful posts below on repository setup and best practices. Doesn't cover the SDK...yet, but useful to know what kind of posts you are looking for.
