Configuration

When you run SQL-DK for the first time the template config file in ~/.sql-dk/config.xml will emerge.

Databases

The only thing you have to configure are database connections. Just add or uncomment section like one of these:

<database>
		<name>my_postgres_1</name>
		<url>jdbc:postgresql://localhost:5432/database_name</url>
		<userName>dbuser</userName>
		<password>dbpass</password>
</database>

<database>
		<name>my_mysql_1</name>
		<url>jdbc:mysql://localhost:3306/database_name</url>
		<userName>dbuser</userName>
		<password>dbpass</password>
</database>

Aditional properties for JDBC driver of particular database can be configured by adding:

<property name="propertyName">propertyValue</property>

Or specified ad-hoc on command line:

$ sql-dk --db-property "propertyName" "propertyValue"

See also --db-property and --list-jdbc-properties in usage documentation.

Supported DBMS

SQL-DK supports any database system for which JDBC driver exists. This drivers (.jar files) must be on class path. Class path for PostgreSQL and MySQL drivers is preconfigured – just install recommended packages ( libpostgresql-jdbc-java libmysql-java ) and you should be able to connect.

You can also plug-in custom JDBC drivers for other DBMS. Just add an array variable into your ~/.sql-dk/environment.sh:

CUSTOM_JDBC=(
	"/one/dbms/driver.jar"
	"/second/dbms/driver.jar"
);

Formatters

You can configure the default formatter:

<defaultFormatter>tabular</defaultFormatter>

Or define your own formatters:

<formatter>
	<name>xml</name>
	<class>info.globalcode.sql.dk.formatting.XmlFormatter</class>
</formatter>

Formatters can be parametrized in same way as databases:

<property name="propertyName">propertyValue</property>

E.g. to enable long value trimming in tabular formatter:

$ sql-dk --formatter-property "trim" "true"
