Subject IRC chat summary: is there a way to find out column names in ij?
Date Fri, 07 Jul 2006 02:46:22 GMT
A user asked this question on #derby today (and here's a summary of the
chat since there are probably others on this list with the same question):

   Is there a way that I can find out what columns are in a table in ij?
   like describe tablename or something?

You can't do that in ij, but that feature has been logged as DERBY-1164.

In the meantime, dblook lets you extract the schema for a table.  dblook
is documented in the Derby Tools and Utilities Guide:

   http://db.apache.org/derby/docs/10.1/tools/ctoolsdblook.html

And this page provides examples:
