InstantDB: FW: Creating a New RDB


To create a new InstantDB database, take a copy of sample.prp from the
examples directory. Copy it to the directory where you want your new
database to reside, and rename it to whatever you would like your database
to be called, e.g. mydb.prp. The first time that any program attempts to
connect to this database using its URL, e.g. jdbc:idb:c:/usr/mydb.prp (use
your own directory details here) InstantDB will create the database for you.

You can then issue SQL statements to create any of the tables that you want.
For example, you could use the sample program and a script like sql1.txt
from the examples directory.

Subject: Creating a New RDB

I can not find straight documentation on how to
setup a new relational database using your system.
Could you point me in the right direction. I have
setup the InstantDB. It runs all of the demos and I can look at the database
that are there. But there is not clear cut instructions on how to do the
setup of relational tables.

I work for trade school and I teach electronics courses. I also teach the
computer repair, and networking courses. I would like to put together a mock
website to present to our school that has seven locations in the Mid
Atlantic region. The school wants to go into distant learning and I have
been trying to get the contract. I need this up and running in three weeks
from the date of this email. So, please help.
