README for SQLEdit for OPENSTEP ------------------------------- Welcome to ICOS's latest version of SQLEdit - and now, it runs on WINDOWS NT and 95 with OPENSTEP from Apple (www.apple.com). SQLEdit is a useful small application to support EOF developer. The background to write such an app was the necessity to handle/modify the database contents via DML (data manipulation language) statements that knowns the model identifiers and hide the sometimes cryptical database object names. FEATURES -------- - within this app you can use model identifier for DML statements or database object names in either DML or DDL statements - any statements that the database knows about are allowed (dependent on the adaptor of the loaded model) - private command: 'describe <objectname>;' to get deep informations about model or entities - can execute a stament list loaded from file (batch manipulations) or single statement - print result sets to non postscript printers via GhostScript (ftp.cs.wisc.edu) (tested with GS version 5.01, you need GSView too) - don't need to type in any statement twice: go (by mouse/cursor) to the end of that statement (it is behind the semicolon) and press <return> again - and much more ... TO DO ----- - user defined transactions (at the point every command is a transaction that was commited if it was successful or rolled back if it was not) - save typed sql statements to file - sorting of columns in addition of '... order by ...' clauses - connect to a database without a given model - any what you really need!
