What’s new in 2.1

 


Entity Management


Derived attributes

Datanect now allows you to create derived attributes.
Derived attributes are be defined in the entity repository’s
specific query language. For now only RDBMS repositories are
supported. You can specify them e.g. in SQL.


Derived attributes in user-defined references

Derived attributes can also be used as source or target
attributes in user-defined entity references. This extends your
options when connecting data.


Datanect perspective


Type search for entity classes

You can open the type search dialog for entity classes
find and open entity classes more quickly. The selected entity
class will be opened in the tablebrowser.

 


Full quallified entity class name

The tablebrowser shows you the full qualified entity class
as the tab’s tool tip now.

Invert selection

You can now invert the actual selection in the
tablebrowser through the context menu.


Sort columns

You can now sort the tablebrowser’s column. The sort will
only be applied to the tablebrowser’s actual content. It will
not be applied to the remote repository. E.g. by using an order
by SQL. This feature is planned for a later release.

  • [DATANECT-200] – CHAR based entity attributes are cut to 1 char

Entity Repository Explorer


User-defined markers

The Entity Repository Explorer shows an user-defined marker on entity
classes that either contains user-defined references or derived
attributes.

You can now add or remove derived attributes through the
Entity Repository Explorer’s context menu.


Manage user-defined references

You can also add or remove user-defined references through
the Entity Repository Explorer’s context menu.
