Subject [jira] Created: (DERBY-1164) 'show tables' and 'describe' commands in ij
Date Wed, 29 Mar 2006 13:52:23 GMT
'show tables' and 'describe' commands in ij

         Key: DERBY-1164
         URL: http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-1164
     Project: Derby
        Type: New Feature
  Components: Tools  
    Reporter: Håvard Mork
    Priority: Trivial

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.
