What’s new in 2.0

Datanect 2.0 is a nearly complete new implementation based on Eclipse RCP. The goal is to provide a more stable application, more familiar user interface and better IDE integration in the future.


Framework


Datanect is now based upon the eclipse rich client platform. The old databrowser is integrated through a separate frame and a read-only view now.


Entity Repository Explorer


The entity repository explorer provides you access to all entity repositories and contained entities


Dynamic POJO Mapping generation

You can generate a hibernate dynamic pojo mapping from every RDBMS based entity repository now. This very helpful for rapid prototyp creation.


The context menu of the tablebrowser provides you all available commands.


Tablebrowser


A new tablebrowser was added that is now used to browse the data.


The context menu of the tablebrowser provides you all available commands.


Outline


The outline gives you a structured overview over the opened tablebrowsers.


 

Treebrowser


A treebrowser was added that allows you to support an entity related browsing. It is also very useful when you want to browse hierachical structures. Such as references to entities in the same table. E.g. child – parent relationships.


Export

The export is completely re-implemented and now supports consistent export data sets. it shows you inconsistent entities and provides you actions to add required entities or remove inconsistent ones.

 


Open in default editor
When an export is finished it will ask you if the exported file should be opened in the default editor.
This editor can be changed using Preferences -> General -> Editors -> File Associations.
