2. Developer Tasks > Archiving object definitions

Archiving object definitions

Siebel Tools supports the creation of archive files, with a .sif suffix, for selected object definitions or entire projects. As indicated in the previous sections, these archive files are created during the Check Out process automatically to provide easy comparison and restoring capabilities. A .sif file contains the XML representation of the archived objects.

Archive files can also be created manually and have proven very useful for backup purposes or to quickly provide fellow developers with object prototypes.

We can use the Add to Archive... command in the context menu to add one or more objects to a list of objects to be archived. The Export to Archive File dialog is displayed on the first invocation of the command.
