Description Petr Jiricka 2005-05-13 16:29:14 UTC
Add a button called e.g. "Download Drivers", that would open the web browser on
the page that lists JDBC drivers, such as:

Will investigate for 4.2. Not difficult, but UI change, so should be probably
fixed before feature freeze.
Comment 2 Petr Jiricka 2005-08-08 15:23:03 UTC
Now that I am thinking about it, it may also be useful to have support for
downloading *databases*, not just drivers.
Comment 3 Andrei Badea 2005-08-08 15:42:48 UTC
I suppose if there was a web page with databases, we could link to it. It could
be useful especially for small embeddable databases such as Derby or SQLite,
which are easy to install and start with. "Bigger" databases such as PostgreSQL
or MySQL aren't usually so easy to install or they require a bit of
configuration, it depends on the database.

In the future we might even consider writing integration modules for these
databases. They would contain the database, the JDBC driver, and could
automatically add the driver and a database connection to the Database Explorer.

Anyway, the support for downloading drivers is now more important IMO.
