You may decide to either:
1)Implement the generic API directly within your application’s code, or
2) Create an application-specific front-end to call the API.

    How are you tracking changes made to the text catalog? Are you allowing users to maintain the catalog or is this still in the technical domain. How do you identify changes to the text catalog during maintenenace since this is not a comparable object?

    We cannot track changes to text catalog just like message catalog.
    End users should ideally not change the text catalog text, it should be functional or technical people who needs to edit the text catalog.

    Yes, it not comparable object just like message catlaog, identifiying the changes is a problem and we don't need to.
    We need to use the DMS scripts to between the instances the updated one.
