Project Plan For SQL Dev Tools, version 1.7


"Data Tools" is a vast domain, yet there are a fairly small number of foundational requirements when developing with or managing data-centric systems. A developer is interested in an environment that is easy to configure, one in which the challenges of application development are due to the problem domain, not the complexity of the tools employed. Data management, whether by a developer working on an application, or an administrator maintaining or monitoring a production system, should also provide a consistent, highly usable environment that works well with associated technologies.

The Data Tools Platform (DTP) project provides a set of frameworks and basic tools to enable data-centric development in a variety of data types, including databases (via JDBC) and ODA data sources (for BIRT reporting). The frameworks are open to allow common interfaces (both API and user interface) across different types of data.

DTP is broken into a number of sub-projects. This project plan focuses on the SQL Development Tools sub-project, which provides a set of frameworks and basic tools to handle management of database assets and SQL queries

Release Deliverables

DTP provides two main deliverables: one deliverable for developers, which includes source code, examples, and so on; and a user or runtime deliverable that just provides the basics for DTP use.
