    Database support

    Peng Tuck Kwok Newbie

      Does anyone know how easy is it to get support for other Databases into Nukes and what kind of work is required?

      I'm currently interested in Nukes but wish to use it with another db like SAPDB (http://www.sapdb.org)

          the most important thing is :

          either the driver is JDBC3.0 compliant

          or sapdb supports auto generated keys.
          there is a way to retrieve it after it has been inserted.
          if so, you need to create an entity command for sapdb.
          this command will enable retrieving of the key after it has been inserted by the CMP engine :

          look at org/jboss/server/ejb/plugins/cmp/jdbc/$vendor/JDBC$vendorCreateCommand.java

          where vendor is :hsqldb, informix, jdbc3, mssql, mysql, postgres, sybase.

          each of these class is an implementation. so if you know how to fetch the PK from the vendor you can copy one of these and implement it.

          usually there are two ways to do such :

          either downcast the connection to the vendor connection and fetch it by a specific method. (mysql for instance)

          or executes a specific sql query right after the insertion to fetch it. (hsqldb for instance)

          after done that, the rest is plain vanilla : write the DDL files that contains the statements to setup nukes.

            Fortunately their driver is :D

            Hmm, I understand what you are saying. Should be doable with any of your suggestions. Thanks :)

              For those interested in using SapDB, here is code for JDBCSapDBCreateCommand.java, I can also send the ddl for nukes if any body is interested

              package org.jboss.ejb.plugins.cmp.jdbc.keygen;

              import java.sql.PreparedStatement;
              import java.sql.Connection;

              import java.sql.SQLException;
              import java.sql.Statement;
