pdx rename

pdx rename

Renames PDX types in an offline disk store.

Any PDX types that are renamed will be listed in the output. If no renames are done or the disk-store is online, then this command will fail.

Availability: Offline.

Syntax:
pdx rename --old=value --new=value --disk-store=value --disk-dirs=value(,value)*
Name Description
--old Required. If a PDX type's fully qualified class name has a word that matches this text then it will be renamed. Words are delimited by '.' and '$'.
--new Required. The text to replace the word that matched old.
--disk-store Required. Name of the disk store to operate on.
--disk-dirs Required. Directories which contain the disk store files.

Example Commands:

Change all packages that start with "com.gemstone" to "com.pivotal":
gfsh>pdx rename --old=com.gemstone --new=com.pivotal --disk-store=ds1 --disk-dirs=/diskDir1
Change a class named “MyClassName” to “YourClassName”:
gfsh>pdx rename --old=MyClassName --new=YourClassName --disk-store=ds1 --disk-dirs=/diskDir1
Change the FQCN “com.target.app1.OldClass” to “com.target.app2.NewClass”:
gfsh>pdx rename --old=com.target.app1.OldClass --new=com.target.app2.NewClass --disk-store=ds1 --disk-dirs=/diskDir1
Sample Output:
gfsh>pdx rename --old=PortfolioPdx --new=StockPdx --disk-store=DiskStore1 --disk-dirs=/DiskDir1
