I think the DBI/SQL backend is ready to try. It is in the gda-dev2
branch. The GDA backend has been disabled and a DBI backend is enabled.
It assumes that the include files are in /usr/include/dbi/dbi.h and the
driver files are in /usr/lib/dbd. The only driver that the DBI backend
supports is sqlite3. I am using libdbi-0.8.2. I assume later versions
will work. I don't know about earlier versions. There is a compilation
check that the header file is present, but no version check.
No new URI types have been added. If you try to open a file, it will
check if it is an sqlite3 file, and will load it with sqlite3. If it
can't, it will revert to xml. Save As will save a file as an sqlite3
file. The "Connect to Database" menu entry is still enabled but will
I don't have a windows compilation environment, so I haven't tried it on
Please feel free to try it out and report any problems. This is not yet
ready for your real data, though it would be a good test to load your
xml file and save-as an sqlite3 file.
