Modules are parts that are either used for reuse or for creation of Model instances.

Uploading Modules

Important: You can upload only Modules exported with the GO-BPMN export.

To upload a Module or Model, executable module with any imported modules, to the LSPS Server, do the following:

  1. In the Modules view, click the Upload button.
  2. Define what to do with the current database schema:
    • Do nothing with database schema: Existing schema remains unchanged.
    • Update the schema by model: New tables, columns and relationships are added; however, no data is deleted.
    • Validate schema first: Existing schema is validated against the new model schema (if inconsistencies are detected, the model launching fails).
    • Drop/create schema: Existing schema is dropped and a new schema following the new model definitions is created.
  3. In the Model Upload dialog box, locate and select the model, and click Upload.
  4. Click the Upload button.

The executable module appears in the list of available modules.
