The Database Connections properties page allows you to select database connections for a project. You can choose from all of the database connections available in the workspace. Progress Developer Studio for OpenEdge automatically connects to selected databases when you open the project.
To access the Database Connections page, right-click an OpenEdge project name in the Project Explorer view and choose Properties from the context menu. Expand the Progress OpenEdge node in the tree view, and then click the Database Connections node.
The following controls are available:
|Configure Database Connections||Opens up the Database Connections preference page where you can add, edit and delete, and import and export database connection profiles.|
|Show Selected||Show only the database connections that are associated with the currently selected project.|
|Show All||Show all database connections that are available in the current workspace.|
|Connections viewer||Displays a list of available database connections, along with
their associated attributes. Those connections which are currently
assigned to the project are checked and displayed first in the list.
To assign a database connection to the current project, select the checkbox. When a row is checked, it is repositioned at the top of the list, just below the last checked item.
|Connection String||Displays the database startup parameters for the connection
selected in the Connections viewer. Click on
a connection name in the viewer to select it.
For more information about OpenEdge database startup parameters, see OpenEdge Data Management: Database Administration. You can find OpenEdge manuals in the Product Documentation section of the Progress Software Developer's Network Web site.
|Select All||Selects all rows.|
|Deselect All||Deselects all rows.|
