NAME

       eoutil - Command line utility to perform database and EOF oriented tasks.

SYNOPSIS

       eoutil command [command\-options]

DESCRIPTION

       This manual page describes briefly the eoutil command.

       eoutil  is a command line utility that performs database and Enterprise Objects Framework-
       related tasks. It allows to connect to data sources, dump data from them or  modify  model
       features.

       eoutil supports the following commands, with the corresponding command-options:

       · dump  <model>  [\-source <source> [sourcefile]] \-dest <dest> [destfile] [\-schemaCreate
         <options>] [\-schemaDrop <options>] [\-postI\ nstall] [\-force] [\-connDict  <connection
         dictionary>]   [\-entities  <entities>]  [\-excludedEntities  <entities>]  [\-modelGroup
         <modelGroup>] [\-ascii]

         This command reads data from <source> and dumps it to <dest>. The dump may include  bits
         of DML that create bits of database schema. The \-source flag is optional if only schema
         is to be created (i.e. no data is being dumped). The following is  a  list  of  possible
         values for each of the arguments in the command:

         · model -- must be the name of an eomodel or eomodeld file

         · source  --  'plist'  (read  from  stdin unless source file is specified) or 'database'
           (uses model to connect)

         · sourcefile -- name of file to read plist from

         · dest -- 'plist' or 'script' (both are written to stdout unless destfile is  specified)
           or 'database' (uses model to connect)

         · destfile -- name of file to write plist or script

         · options  --  'database',  'tables',  'primaryKeySupport',  'primaryKeyConstraints'  or
           'foreignKeyConstraints'

         · postInstall -- looks in the userInfo dictionary for an array of SQL strings to process
           after any schema creation and data dumping is done

         · force -- Do not quit processing after database error

         · connDict -- A substitute connection dictionary

         · entities -- a subset of the entities in the model (all are used by default)

         · excludedEntities -- a subset of the entities in the model which shall not be used (all
           are used by default)

         · modelGroup -- A list of models to create a model group. (Allows you to use models  not
           in a framework. Model names must be absolute paths.)

         · ascii -- Convert all non-ASCII characters to their nearest ASCII equivalents.

       · convert <model> <adaptorName> <connectionDictionary> <outFileName>

         This  command  converts the type mapping in a model for the data source specified by the
         connection dictionary URL. The  connection  dictionary  in  the  new  model  is  set  to
         connectionDictionary.

         · model -- must be the name of an eomodel or eomodeld file

         · adaptorName -- PostgreSQL, FlatFile, etc.

         · connectionDictionary  --  string  in  property  list format representing a dictionary,
           specifying the database name for the data source (required) and username and  password
           (if required by that data source).

         · outFileName -- the name of a directory to write the converted model

       · connect (<model> | (<adaptorName> <connectionDictionary>))

         This  command  attempts  to connect to a data source using the adaptor named adaptorName
         with connectionDictionary, or using the connection dictionary in model.  It  returns  an
         exit status of 0 if successful and 1 otherwise. This is primarily useful for scripts.

         · model -- must be the name of an eomodel or eomodeld file

         · adaptorName -- PostgreSQL, FlatFile, etc.

         · connectionDictionary  --  string  in  property  list format representing a dictionary,
           specifying the database name for the data source (required) and username and  password
           (if required by that data source).

EXAMPLES

       #  eoutil  dump  Movies.eomodeld  \-source  plist  \-dest  database  \-schemaCreate tables
       primaryKeySupport foreignKeyConstraints < MovieData.plist

       Creates the tables in the database, reads data in plist format from,stdin stores the  data
       in  the database listed in the connection dictionary of model, creates primary key support
       in the database, and creates foreign key constraints  corresponding  to  the  relationship
       definitions.

       #  eoutil convert Movies.eomodeld PostgreSQL '{ databaseName = test; hostName = localhost;
       userName = postgres; password = postgres; }' M.eomodeld

       Converts types in Movies.eomodeld file to PostgreSQL types and writes the converted  model
       to ./M.eomodel

       #  eoutil  connect  PostgreSQL  '{  databaseName  = test; hostName = localhost; userName =
       postgres; password = postgres; }'

       Attempts to connect to a PostgreSQL database on host localhost.
