Subject re: Add one table from a different schema
Date Thu, 12 Jan 2012 19:58:24 GMT
Hello Alain,

the solution is simple: for each schema you need a separate database object i.e. in your case
you need two classes derived from DBDatabase that define the corresponding table(s).

The constructor of DBDatabase allows to supply a schema name.
When you join, the schema name will always be prepended.

IMO it does not make sense to define tables of a different schema in a single DBDatabase (however
I must admit, that the class therefore should rather be called DBSchema than DBDatabase).

If you use Oracle it is even possible to work with Database Links like that. The schema (in
Oracle the user) is prepended, the Link is appended to the table or view name.

Hope you found my answer helpful.
