Description neteler 2007-05-17 09:06:31 UTC
A rather trivial wish: The syntax of the connection string is hard to remember
(e.g., host=localhost dbname=globalsod) - please add an example into the wizard
where the connection string is entered. Currently there is only the word
"postgresql" and nothing else (behind this word there is space to add an example
for a connection string).

which step in which wizard should contain this information?

How do you connect to postgresql? ODBC or JDBC?

I think this is something for documentation

Attached a screenshot to explain where an example could go (since there is
plenty of space and no HELP button).
