This is a good idea. We’re considering some options to make supporting all 8 DBMS types easier for MOD Authors, both with online tools, and tools that an Author can download and integrate or use.poyntesm wrote:OK...long term view this one if you even think they are good ideas
Each MOD should be able to store its schema (if they have one) in the MODDB, it would need to be a step before submission. So you could create a MOD in the DB that is pre-submission stage. Part of the manage page maybe. It would allow you add the schema and then you could download all the DBMS schema files or place them in the MODX file with the correct tags. This would encourage MOD authors to support all DBMS.
