Description elishae 2009-03-25 10:51:36 UTC
Database Explorer is NOT providing any way to invoke VisualSQLEditor.

Where as the spec and mentions about an extra Menu Item ('Design Query') to be used for
invoking Visual Editor.

I could not find this in current 6.5 and even in current 6.7 milestone build.

Are you using VisualWeb component? Check VisualWeb documentation for more information.
Comment 2 elishae 2009-03-25 11:18:16 UTC
I remember that VisualWeb ans Web are merged into JavaEE support.

Does this not mean that all the VisualWeb Components are available for normal Project?

Also, I noticed that VisualSQLEditor (db.sql.visualeditor) module is showing as active in Modulemanager. does not contain any information of change in use-case.

Re-opening.. Kindly provide the necessary clarifications.

Let me be clear in what I'm looking for:

As per the spec in the mentioned wiki, there is NO indication that VisualSQLEditor is available ONLY for visual web 

1.VisualSQLEditor should be invokable for DB Explorer as mentioned in

This would enable developers (who are NOT SO GOOD at SQL) to design their SQL Queries using the rich functionality of 

Having said that, I expect VisualSQLEditor to be independently available irrespective of whether or not a user is 
developing a VisualWeb Project.

If you consider this as a RFE, I don't have any issues with that. However, IMHO, turning down this request as INVALID 
is NOT appropriate.

As of now, Netbeans is ALREADY shipping with this rich functionality (but in a NARROW SCOPE of VisualWeb).
Tweaking it to be available as general option would be of great value for developers.
Kindly consider this.

I'm still thinking it RFE belongs to Visual Web area. There is a implementation of this UI spec. They should take care
of added this action into Database Explorer node, there is API for it.
Comment 5 elishae 2009-04-06 16:52:52 UTC
will this be addessed in 6.7? 

it seems, API is ready and only UI needs to be updated to invoke the existing API.
Comment 6 elishae 2009-07-07 10:50:38 UTC
when can we expect this to be addressed?
