Hi everyone! If you’re looking to add a new field to a table using the command line instead of modifying the entity.xml file, there shouldn’t be any significant problems. It can be a convenient approach, especially for quick changes.
Regarding the code that reads the XML and adds the new column to the database, it might not be explicitly mentioned in the repository you mentioned (https://github.com/axelor/axelor-open-platform). However, you can look for the relevant code in the repository’s source flies, particularly in the database-related modules or packages.
If you’re having trouble locating the specific code you need, it’s a good idea to ask for assistance from the project’s community or developers directly. They can provide you with more specific guidance and illuminate the process you’re trying to understand.
