In a Berkeley DB XML repository the actions available at connection level in the
Data Source Explorer view are the following:
- Refresh - Performs a refresh
of the selected node's subtree.
- Disconnect - Closes the current database connection.
- Configure Database
Sources - Opens the Data
Sources preferences page where you can configure both data sources
- Add container - Adds a new container in the repository with the
- Name - The name of the new container.
- Container type - At creation time, every container must have a
type defined for it. This container type identifies how XML documents are stored in the
container. As such, the container type can only be determined at container creation
time; you cannot change it on subsequent container opens. Containers can have one of the
following types specified for them:
- Node container - XML documents are stored as individual
nodes in the container. That is, each record in the underlying database contains a
single leaf node, its attributes and attribute values if any, and its text nodes, if
any. Berkeley DB XML also keeps the information it needs to reassemble the document
from the individual nodes stored in the underlying databases. This is the default,
and preferred, container type.
- Whole document container - The container contains entire
documents. The documents are stored without any manipulation of line breaks or
- Allow validation - If checked it causes documents to be
validated when they are loaded into the container. The default behavior is to not
- Index nodes - If checked it causes indices for the container to
return nodes rather than documents. The default is to index at the document level. This
property has no meaning if the container type is whole document container.
- Properties - Shows a dialog containing a list of the Berkeley
connection properties: version, home location, default container type, compression
