Hi,

Is a Unix Version of the SqlSpec program in the works ?

We use Oracle and MS SQL with many Schemas. It would be nice to have a Unix Version of the program to create a Data Dictionary, etc. for our systems.


Sincerely,
Pat

SqlSpec is a .NET app that requires a windows client box to run on. However you can still accomplish what you want.

SqlSpec is a client app and does not need to be installed on the server that is hosting your database. So what you need to do is this:

1. install SqlSpec on a windows box that has network access to your Unix server.
2. In the box for Oracle (on the "connections I" page) type connection string to your Unix server hosting Oracle.
3. click the "go" button.

Hi Jesse,

Thank you - for your prompt reply.

Yes - this is what we did and it works fine.

What we were hoping to do is have this generate the Data Dictionary "real-time". So, if a user is browsing the DD, they will see the "real-time" information vs. a snap shot.

Thanks again for your help.


Sincerely,
Pat

If it was in Unix, we could "shell out" in the browser to call SqlSpec and generate the latest info.

Sorry there are no plans to port SqlSpec to unix/linux.

You can set up a scheduled job in windows to refresh the docs as often as you like.

But having the docs be "realtime" is not an option - it will always be a snapshot.
