[fix] case 133617: SQL views are not visible/accessible


Regarding this, will data from views continue to be cached in 4 as they were in 3.x?

What do you mean with cached?

And before you asnwer: I guess so, no changes in that area: Servoy cannot know about the underlying structure of data returned by views, as it doesn't know the underlying SQL statement.

Sorry to ask the obvious, but how does the autoupdate work? Nothing obvious happening here. (Mac 10.4)

Have you seen this in the Release Notes:
This version is available through the download page on the Servoy website (developer section).
This version will also be available through auto update shortly. Please make sure you are using the latest version of the updater as discussed in the beta 6 thread.


You can use the servoy_updater.bat/sh file to update, but in this case you want to upgrade to a beta version, you you need to alter the bat/sh file so you call teh servoy_updater.jar with an extra option "-beta" as described in the "beta 6" thread.

Yup, I read that. It says there was a bug in beta 5. I started with beta 6, so didn't think it applied. Thanks for the clarification.

Meaning views behave the same way in 3.x as in 4?

Yes, views behave the same way as in 3.5 and this is not likely to change as explained in the other thread.
