Subject Re: viewing table structure
Date Thu, 10 Apr 2008 18:59:49 GMT
Hi Brandon,

The Derby interactive sql tool, ij, supports a describe command, which 
you can use to display the structure of tables and views. You can find 
an explanation of this command in the "ij commands and errors reference" 
section of the Derby Tools and Utilities Guide: 
http://db.apache.org/derby/docs/10.3/tools/ Just look for the subsection 
titled "Describe command".

Hope this helps,
-Rick
