ODI SDK: Create a Subfolder

This page includes a program to create a subfolder under an existing project and an existing folder.

import oracle.odi.core.persistence.transaction.ITransactionDefinition;
import oracle.odi.core.persistence.transaction.support.DefaultTransactionDefinition;
import oracle.odi.core.persistence.transaction.ITransactionManager;
import oracle.odi.core.persistence.transaction.ITransactionStatus;
import oracle.odi.core.persistence.IOdiEntityManager;
import oracle.odi.domain.project.OdiProject;
import oracle.odi.domain.project.OdiFolder;
import oracle.odi.domain.project.finder.IOdiProjectFinder;
import oracle.odi.domain.project.finder.IOdiFolderFinder;

ITransactionDefinition txnDef = new DefaultTransactionDefinition();

ITransactionManager tm = odiInstance.getTransactionManager();
ITransactionStatus txnStatus = tm.getTransaction(txnDef);

IOdiEntityManager mgr = odiInstance.getTransactionalEntityManager();

OdiProject proj = ((IOdiProjectFinder) mgr.getFinder(OdiProject.class))
Collection<OdiFolder> folders = ((IOdiFolderFinder) mgr.getFinder(OdiFolder.class))
.findByName("Test Folder", proj.getCode());
OdiFolder topFolder = folders.iterator().next();

OdiFolder myFolder1 = new OdiFolder(topFolder,"Test Sub-Folder");




A folder is created under a project, so before you get the folder, you need to get the project.

I got the project by the project code, and got the the folder by folder name.  Both are working.

The difference is that a project can have multiple folders and they can have the same name.  To get a single folder, we can use the iteractor to go through it one by one.
