The importObjects script

The importObjects script lets you import objects that were previously exported using exportObjects.

The script automatically imports objects and referenced files if they do not already exist on the system, or if they differ from the existing object on the system. If the file you specify as the import source file contains references to any objects or files that already exist on the system, a warning message displays, along with a list of the existing objects. You can choose to cancel the import, or to continue; if you continue, the existing objects are overwritten. (Data for the existing objects is backed up to the/aiw/aiw1/config/backups (AIX and Linux) or C:\aiw\aiw1\config\backups (Windows) directory.)
