Description entonio 2008-10-27 13:53:56 UTC
The database explorer is a very nice tool, but I have a problem with the connection listing: each connection is listed
as "url [user on SCHEMA]" and this makes it hard to read, since 1) sorting is done by url, which isn't usually helpful,
and more grievous 2) the url takes up a lot of space and at least for me that means the pane must have a lot more width
than necessary or convenient just to be able to see what user this is; and as you know, user/schema is usually the most
important information, so I think it should come first. In my case, for instance, I have a lot of connections which
differ only in user/schema (well, the derby connections that come with nb are almost as good an example), which means I
can't distinguish them at all using my normal width for the services pane (I'll attach an example image).

I think this should be easy to solve, just make the description "user on SCHEMA (url)" or some variant which makes sure
the user is presented first. As it is, it's a usability fault, imo. Thanks.
