Subject:Development Copy of Application

I want to setup a copy of a production application and make necessary design changes. As I have only one server, I notice that the development copy of the application is accessing the same tables as the production app - fair enough as they are the same table names.

What would be your recommended approach to having the development copy access different tables?

I thought the following:

Create a keyword called myTable and give it a value say myTableName
When I want to create a TableManager object I then use

TableManager t = new TableManager(pSystem, pSession, null, pSession.getKeywordValue("myTable"));

Now I can set the keyword value to be different in my prod and dev apps - therefore use different tables.
