Re: xxx$db$tables and more ...


Bregitte

A good way to do this is to switch logging on in your database by setting
traceLevel=2 in the properties file. You can then experiment by making
DatabaseMetaData.getColumns calls and watching the SQL that InstantDB
generates for them. You can then cut and paste the SQL.
