 Description  « Hide
SFID: 446180#
Submitted By: seanleyne

Add functionality to engine to allow for database
aliases to be defined in a server side text/INI file
(FBAlias.INI) to assist in resolving client database
names.

This would allow for clients to specify as database
string like server:alias, and have the server resolve
the 'alias' value into the full 'path\database.gdb'
string.

I agree. Currently if you move your database you have to
re-release every client, or give every client the ability
to read settings to discover where the DB is (which is the
same kind of things as a do-it-yourself alias).
