Define a data source with external parameters [message #38056] Mon, 05 November 2007 09:28 Go to next message

Hi all,

we would like to use DTP in our product, and define a datasource using
parameters defined elsewhere in the project properties. This datasource
would then appear by default when opening the data explorer view.

Is this feasible ?

Thanks,

Antoine

Hi Antoine...

This seems like an interesting use case. Can you provide more details about
it?

So you'd have a file or something in the project properties that would
define the connection information for a database connection, and then would
like a custom connection profile to see those properties and add a
connection profile to the data source explorer?

This might be tricky, but I can see one possibility would be to have a way
to map a file or set of properties to an exported connection profile file
(which is just XML) and that would allow you to then import that export
profile into the DSE so it shows up.

The only issue I see is that the connection profile cache is
workspace-relative, not project-relative. But there may be ways around this
by creating some sort of project-relative profile repository that would read
the data from the project properties and handle it.

Can you provide more details so we have more information to work with?
Perhaps specifics about what the properties would look like in the project
and the expected behavior?

Thanks in advance. Sorry for the delay in getting back to you.

Hi Brian,

I had lost track of this issue and didn't open a Bugzilla entry for it.

I think the settings could be saved on a preference store per project.

Let's continue this discussion on Bugzilla, it will be a bit easier to
track down :).

Thanks for replying!
