Ant target: EnableTriggersAndPopulateSchema

EnableTriggersAndPopulateSchema creates stored procedures, enables the triggers, and runs the massload utility to load the WebSphere Commerce bootstrap data and NL (supported languages) data. If you choose to use an existing WebSphere Commerce schema, ensure that bootstrap data, stored procedures, or both, do not exist. Otherwise, this target will not run successfully.

Important: This Ant target is to be used only as a part of WebSphere Commerce instance creation.
