Supported RDBMS brands and features for Corticon EDC

Corticon EDC can connect a Vocabulary to an instance of a supported data source. All data sources support Import/Clear Database Metadata and Validate Mappings. Some Corticon EDC features are not supported in certain supported data sources. Data manipulations and data source startup functions that might be required to ensure error-free interaction between Corticon EDC and a data source are noted.
Note: The mapping of database columns to a Corticon Vocabulary through SQL might experience problems when database columns have hyphens, spaces or other special characters (even though some databases and SQL parsers allow them). The generally accepted valid values are all alphanumeric characters and the underscore character. It is a plus to use all-lowercase names to avoid platform case inconsistencies. For more information on Corticon's accepted names, see the topic Vocabulary node naming restrictions
