Connection Dictionary Twiddling – Part 2

I wrote about using Project Wonder’s ERXConfigurationManager to ‘twiddle’ your model connection dictionary settings here.

I only listed the global properties, but there are per model properties as well. Unfortunately the JDBC settings are not very well documented. So, to google index my brain, here are my notes: Most of the heavy lifting is done by the fixJDBCDictionary method in ERXModelGroup – you can read the source if you want to know all the values – here is a (MySQL) example with the most common ones:

  • MyModelName.URL=jdbc:mysql://localhost/my_dbname?capitalize…etc
  • MyModelName.DBUser=db_user
  • MyModelName.DBPassword=db_password
  • MyModelName.DBDriver=com.mysql.jdbc.Driver
