Ways to consolidate load-data.xml

We have a few different sets of data that are in our load-data.xml and would like to clean up the folders/process. The original thought was to use the multiple ant targets that we've made for testing individual sets and trying to call that from the load-data.xml. 

I also found this https://docs.onenetwork.com/devnet/latest/platform-user-s-guide/data-and-process-modeling-with-studio/load-data/module-specific-data

Which sounds like what I'm trying to achieve but am unsure of how the suggestion at the bottom works

  1. <LoadModuleData modulePrefix="ZBKS"/> - If you want to load only ZBKS module data.

If I call this with that module prefix is it going to use all inbound interfaces associated with that module or is that referencing a LoadModuleData.xml file that has the prefix defined?

So I guess my question has two parts. What would be the preferred method? If the first how can I call different ant targets within the load-data.xml? If the second is there a more specific example I can use to get started?

LoadModuleData is for when you have a set of data which is always needed when a given module is present.

For example, let's say there is a set of options which makes more sense to store in a data model than in a string enumeration. In that case you can create module data to load whenever that module is used.

The way to create that is:

  1. Create a folder name "data" in the module.
  2. Put the associated data files in that "data" folder.
  3. Create a LoadModuleData.xml file in the module's "data" folder.
  4. Add a line to the dataset's LoadData.xml file calling LoadModuleData and referencing your module.

This may or may not solve your original question. You wrote that you are trying to clean up the folders in a dataset. 

Something I've seen other project teams do is create sub-folders in the dataset/data folder for different sets of related data. For example: dataset/data/dev, dataset/data/qa, dataset/data/psr, etc.

Then they create different load-data targets for each set of data. That way they can run "ant load-data-dev", "ant load-data-qa", etc.
