  • Native XML Project Transfer: the traditional Project Transfer feature is a useful way to copy and replace the entire source project to a target project (file or DBMS). The “Native XML” version is a handy way to generate an XML file when the source and target projects are not available from the same location.
    • The typical usage would be to run a full backup from an onsite environment and restore it onto a local, backup or test environment.
    • This new feature is compatible with local EA files (EAP, EAPx), DMBS, but also from a Cloud Server (url).
