SQL Query editing capabilities exist both in NetBeans and the Visual Web Pack
(originating from Creator). Now that the VWP will be open-source early 2007, the
visual SQL Query editor in the VWP should be made available for use as a general
VWP Query Editor now runs as a standalone Netbeans module, under db/visualsqleditor.
API is undergoing revision, since it will need to be made public. Propose API
and status will be updated on the Twiki.
VWP Query Editor is not currently usable in VWP trunk, until Insync support for
drag/drop of database tables comes online (set for M8).
Developers who want to use the QE can do so via the current API, which requires
implementing two Java interfaces.
Changing milestone to M8 based on Jim's comments below.
Per discussion with Pavel, not checking this in at this time. Will defer this
until there is a client for VisualSQLEditor outside the visualwebsuite. I have
a proposal in to HIE to set this up in DB Explorer.
We will complete this once a suitable UI has been developed for accessing the
Query Editor from the DB Explorer.
Completed and checked in. VisualSQLEditor is now part of IDE cluster, and
available as menu item in Database explorer.
