Comments

Thanks for this great plugin, use it almost everyday. Have one request, would be great if variable can be use instead of parameters prompting, i.e:

set opt1 = "somevalue"; opt2 = "somevalue2"
set opt1 = "othervalueset"; opt2 = "othervalueset2"

    SELECT * from imaginarytable
    WHERE field1 = :opt1 AND field2 = :opt2;

So one can select different value before executing above query. Thanks for great plugin. --JK October 27, 2011

Not sure which version of dbext you are using. By default, when executing the SELECT statement it will prompt you for :opt1 and :opt2. It will then also save these values (for this buffer) and the next time you execute the a query using :opt1 or :opt2, it will ask if you want to use your saved values. You can see the saved values (and delete them) using <Leader>slr (SQL - List - vaRiables). That feature was added in version 11.1, the current version is 14.0 Dfishburn 11:45, April 5, 2012 (UTC)

Bugs

  • Version 20 does not prompt for connection profile
I have two Mysql connection profile in my .vimrc file, works fine with v19. After upgrading to v20. dbext does not prompt for connection profile, I have to issue "\sbp" to select connection first otherwise it will display error "dbext:A valid database type must be chosen"
  • Syntax highlight got removed after some actions sequence if dbext plugin installed.
  • Steps to reproduce: open some file to edit. Enter :cope<CR><C-w>k<C-w>o

I can't reproduce this. If you can using the current version 14.0 please email me, as it will involve some back and forths. Dfishburn 11:45, April 5, 2012 (UTC)
  • Using DBext from VIM on Microsoft Windows XP with Oracle Instant Client 11.2adds a single quote when it should add a double-quote. The command arguments sent to SQLPLUS do not get properly expanded and the command fails. Changing the code from
    # Single quote causing problem
    #          |
    #          *
    sqlplus -S 'my_user/my_password@oracle_server" @c:\temp/dbext.sql


to

    # Substituting double quote solves problem
    #          |
    #          *
    sqlplus -S "my_user/my_password@oracle_server" @c:\temp/dbext.sql


fixes the problem. Of course, this makes DBext useless unless there is a fix for this behavior. Elcidia 17:37, June 12, 2012 (UTC)

A fix (version 16.0) for this was posted last night, please upgrade to the most current release of dbext. Dfishburn 21:58, June 12, 2012 (UTC)
  • Update: Still not working for Windows command interpreter

I installed version 16.0 and I see that two single quotes are now issued to the command line. Unfortunately, on Windows, these should be double quotes and not single quotes. This is a limitation of the Windows as the command interpreter does not process single quotes (been that way since Windows 3.1 I think).

   #   What it should look like
   #     double quote                      double quote
   #          |                                 |
   #          +                                 +
   sqlplus -S "my_user/my_password@oracle_server" @c:\temp/dbext.sql

As another idea, it would be cool if Powershell could be invoked. Elcidia 13:30, June 13, 2012 (UTC)

  • Update: Version 17.0 is also not working with the Windows command interpreter for the reasons mentioned by @Elcidia.

Changing

    let cmd = dbext_bin .
                \ ' ' . dbext#db_getwtype("cmd_options") .
                \ s:db_option(" '", s:db_get("user"), '') .
                \ s:db_option('/', s:db_get("passwd"), '') .
                \ s:db_option('@', s:db_get("srvname"), '') .
                \ s:db_option(' ', dbext#db_getwtypedefault("extra"), '') .
                \ "' @" . s:dbext_tempfile

to

    let cmd = dbext_bin .
                \ ' ' . dbext#db_getwtype("cmd_options") .
                \ s:db_option(" \"", s:db_get("user"), '') .
                \ s:db_option('/', s:db_get("passwd"), '') .
                \ s:db_option('@', s:db_get("srvname"), '') .
                \ s:db_option(' ', dbext#db_getwtypedefault("extra"), '') .
                \ "\" @" . s:dbext_tempfile

in autoload/dbext.vim (ORA exec section) fixed the problem for me. --October 19, 2012
