I am wondering if there is a way to reuse changeset. Please let me describe my issue. I have a baseline changeset that defines the core set of changes. I also have other change sets that enhance the baseline changes. Adding some extra steps to the changes. At this time, I am duplicating the core changes to different changelogs. Something like below
Let’s assume changelog1 and changelog2 are used for different RDBMS. I put the RDBMS specific change to those special changes
changelog1: changeset: core change 1 core change 2 special change for changelog1 changelog2: changeset: core change 1 core change 2 special change for changelog2
As we can see from above core change 1 and core change 2 are configured in both changelog1 and changelog2. Yes, I am using changefile reference. So I do not really duplicate the content. But I still need to configure the changesets separately. I would like to manage the core changes in a central place then all of the changelogs will get a consistent view.
I am wondering if it is possible to do something like below or equivalent.
corechange: changeset: core change 1 core change 2 changelog1: changeset: reference to corechange special change for changelog1 changelog2: changeset: reference to corechange special change for changelog2
corechange can be something like abstract class which cannot be deployed directly. With something like this, I will have a central place to control the core change set.
Is there any way I can do this?
