Subject [jira] Updated: (DERBY-1164) 'show tables' and 'describe' commands in ij

Håvard Mork updated DERBY-1164:

    Attachment: 1164_3.diff

Thanks for the review. I agree with what was pointed out regarding the intended use of ij.

One thing that puzzled me was the 'getTableTypes' and 'getTable' entries in metadata.properties.
They both mention tables, system tables, and views,  but they have no entries for synonyms.
I don't understand issues regarding version compatibility of metadata.properties well, so
please say if there are any problems.

> 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.
