Database access

To execute an application that accesses a relational database, Genero Studio (GST)Genero Studio for Report Writer (GSTRW) uses the Genero runtime system and the specific database client software, which must be properly configured.

Entries in a FGLPROFILE configuration file can be used to connect to the database. See the specific page for the supported database vendor's software in the Open Database Interface section of the Genero BDL documentation.

Genero Studio database meta-schema files allow you to use the database tables and columns that are listed in the schema to define variables and form fields in your application code and form definitions.

Default environment sets are provided for each database vendor. Values for the environment variables, as well as additional variables, can be added in the Genero Configuration Management dialog as part of the configuration process.
