If the Omnidex Environment is specified, OdxSQL will automatically attempt to connect to the specified Environment.

Syntax

odxsql [Omnidex_Environment_Filespec] 
       [options]
Omnidex Environment Filespec

If specified, OdxSQL will automatically attempt to connect to the Omnidex Environment Filespec. If the Omnidex Environment Filespec is not passed as a program argument, then a CONNECT statement must be performed to establish a connection to the Omnidex Environment. -

C:\Program Files\Omnidex 5.0\demo\orders>
-use=use_filespec

The -use=use_file parameter instructs OdxSql to process all the commands contained within the specified use file. The right hand side of the parameter, use_file, is the filespec of the file containing the commands.

-version

The -version option will display the OdxSQL version. Because OdxSQL displays the Omnidex version in the OdxSQL banner and the OdxSQL command displays Omnidex detailed information, use the -version option to verify the particular version of OdxSQL.

-exit

Exit after completion of processing the commands in the Use File. This option is typically used in creating operating system batch processing scripts so that OdxSQL automatically terminates.

-exit_on_error

Exit if an error occurs.

OdxSQL will normally continue processing OdxSQL commands from a Use file even when a command or syntax error occurs. Seeting the -exit_on_error option will cause OdxSQL to terminate when an error is encountered.

-nobanner

Suppress the display the OdxSQL banner.

-cloa

Run OdxSQL using the CLOA client interface.

This option allows the testing of the OmniAccess CLOA API. Although DISC recommends that new applications are developed using the Omnidex ODBC or JDBC drivers, the CLOA API is supported for backward compatibility. When using the CLOA option, the OdxSQL Connect command connects to an Omnidex Client DataSource created with the DSEDIT Windows Client program.

-odbc

The ODBC option directs OdxSQL to use ODBC calls to connect and interact with SQL statements.

This option allows OdxSQL to test ODBC Connections.

When using this option, the OdxSQL Connect command is used to connect to an ODBC Datasource.

-jdbc

The JDBC option directs OdxSQL to use JDBC calls to connect and interact with SQL statements.

This option allows OdxSQL to test JDBC Connections.

When using this option, the OdxSQL Connect command is used to connect to a JDBC Datasource.

Examples

Running OdxSQL without command line arguments.
 os> odxsql

Use the OdxSQL CONNECT command to connect to an Omnidex Evironment from within OdxSQL.

Specifying an Omnidex Environment Filespec.
os> odxsql myenv.xml
Specifying a file of OdxSQL commands.
os> odxsql -use = mycmds.txt
