Updating DOORS data

Writing data in DOORS is a non trivial task when it comes to determine exactly what should be written and how, notably when an update of existing data is to be performed.
Rather than using the model writer, you are strongly encouraged to use the commands framework, which allows a Java programmer to control the update of DOORS data with fine grained interactions.
