Managing Database Connections

About this chapter

After you install the necessary database software and define the database interface, you can connect to the database from PowerBuilder. Once you connect to the database, you can work with the tables and views stored in that database.

This chapter describes how to connect to a database in PowerBuilder, maintain database profiles, and share database profiles.


In this chapter, the term database refers to both of the following unless otherwise specified:

  • A database or DBMS that you access with a standard database interface and appropriate driver

  • A database or DBMS that you access with the appropriate native database interface
