additional metadata


New user to the editor and haven't actually used the product so I'm just wondering if it is an issue to add additional information about a table to the xml and if there are new sections added to the xml will the metadataeditor crash or the .net component not work properly?

Dear Jay,

It is possible to modify XML files manually according to this scheme definition: http://www.activequerybuilder.com/schemas/metadata.xsd

You may modify each part of the XML file: remove unwanted objects and fields, add relations between tables to have them joined automatically. You may add descriptions and alternate names to existing objects and fields (to hide real names behind user-friendly aliases). You may even create virtual objects and fields to replace ordinary tables with derived tables, fields with complex expressions or sub-queries.

Examples of these exciting features could be found in the demo projects that shipped with the component (see the Alternate Names demo, the Virtual Objects and Fields demo).

Should you need any further information, please do not hesitate to ask.
