Subject [jira] Commented: (DERBY-1164) 'show tables' and 'describe' commands in ij
Date Fri, 31 Mar 2006 00:41:43 GMT

Satheesh Bandaram commented on DERBY-1164:

Thanks for this useful patch!

Did a quick review, with following comments:

1) Should IJ help be modified to show new commands?
2) If you have the itch, more could be added... to display procedures/functions, indexes,
views, synonyms...
3) Should a test be added to function tests? It may be little more involved to add test than
to code this!

> New users migrating from mysql are familiar with commands 'show tables' and 'describe'
 to respectively display all permanent tables, and show fields in a given table. These are
not standard sql, but I suggest to implement them only in the IJ tool for user-friendliness.
> As suggested in db-dev, using DatabaseMetaData should provide the necessary query strings.
