Sharing a Stand-alone Light Copy of a Mock-up

The objective is to send a minimum quantity of data necessary for those working on the receiving end to work on the mock-up without changing their environment.
The cache must be activated. To activate the cache system, see Activating the Cache.
Note the following limitations concerning the use of the Save as Frozen command.
  1. The sender builds the mock-up in a CATProduct.

  1. The sender invokes the SaveAsFrozen  command in order to copy the data of the mock-up on a directory A:

    In the menu bar, select Tools -> DMU Data Flow -> SaveAsFrozen.

The SaveAsFrozen dialog box appears.

  1. In the Save in text-entry field, enter the path of the directory in which you wish to save the data or click the Browse button to navigate to the desired directory.

  2. In the With the prefix text-entry field, enter a prefix that will distinguish your exported data from the actual data.

  3. Click the selection button and choose Save Products linked with cache from the proposed save options list. 

  1. Click the OK button to confirm.

    Note: The name of the active window will now be prefixed by the string you designated in the above dialog box.

  2. The sender sends the (flat) content of the directory A to the receiver.

  3. The receiver puts the (flat) content on a directory B.

  4. The receiver loads the CATProduct from the directory B to build the mock-up.


The copy of the mockup in the specified directory A will contain:
  • for references to models and CATParts, a copy of the corresponding cgr copied from the cache
  • for references to cgrs, a reference to the original cgr (the cgr is not copied to the directory A)  
Note : This scenario is the same as Share a mock-up with a distant site scenario, except that environment modifications are not required. On the other hand, the sent mock-up is a dead-end : it cannot re-enter the design process.
