DTP 1.7 M7 New and Noteworthy
This page documents a few of the things we think are New & Noteworthy for the DTP 1.7 (Galileo) M7 milestone release.
Download the latest 1.7 M7 milestone build [here]. Our M7 candidate will be released as part of the Galileo Release Train on May 11, 2009.
SQL Dev Tools
There's been a ton of work that's gone into SQL Dev Tools for M7, including:
BZ 217923 - Editor does not inherit from STD text editors - specifically tabs
Now, instead of using a default fixed four-character tab, the SQL Text Editor gets the tab length from the Editor Tab Width preference in Eclipse.
BZ 220318 - sql editor opens by default
A new preference has been added to simplify the process of opening a new SQL file in an editor other than the SQL Text Editor. If you look at Data Management->SQL Development->SQL Editor->SQL Files/Scrapbook, you'll see a new checkbox on the page labeled "SQL file is default opened after creation". If checked (default behavior), any new SQL file will open in the SQL Text Editor as in the past. If unchecked, the file will not be opened and can then be opened in a text editor or the graphical SQL Query Editor.
BZ 231401 - Show the elapsed run time of a SQL
Now when you execute a SQL statement, you'll see the elapsed run time. This should prove quite useful when fine-tuning queries for production.
BZ 246180 - SOE:Lost line focus after saving
Previously when you'd have a SQL file in the SQL Text Editor and used "refresh from server" in the context menu, the cursor would jump to the top of the editor. Now it tries to save the position and restore it after the refresh.
BZ 252005 - UI code should be separated from editor.core plugin
Back in our Ganymede release, we did a lot of refactoring work to separate framework and other plug-ins into UI and non-UI chunks for better encapsulation. In Galileo, the SQL Dev Tools team has done a great amount of work to refactor the SQL Dev Editor framework into UI and non-UI chunks.
BZ 256368 - Multi-page SQL Schema Editor Framework & exemplary implementations for Sybase ASA in enablement project
For Galileo, we have a new extensible SQL Schema Editor Framework and an exemplary implementation for the Sybase ASA enablement project. The schema editor includes schema editors for tables, indices, triggers, views, stored procedures, user-defined types, user-defined functions, and events.
BZ 260205 - "Cancel" doesn't work when the result set is large
In the case where a SQL statement is run and takes a long time to complete, there has traditionally been no way to cancel it. The user can now cancel a long-running SQL action and be returned to the UI.
Sometimes if you have huge result sets, it takes a long time to re-load them when you restart and can sometimes cause resource-related issues. This fix also includes a new preference that allows you to clear the result history when the Eclipse workbench is shut down.
BZ 269482 - The order of columns should be changeable in SRV
In prior releases, the order of columns in the SQL Results View has been static. Now you can change them!
