Before adding database functions to an application, you need to load a VA Smalltalk database support feature into your image. VA Smalltalk supplies the following database support features:
IBM Database -- CLI
Native support for IBM DATABASE 2 (DB2).
ODBC Support
Support for ODBC access to databases. This support gives you access to virtually any relational database.
Native Oracle Database
Native support for ORACLE.
To install a feature, follow these steps:
1. From the Options menu in the Organizer, select Load Features.
2. Select the features you want to load from the Available features list, select >>, then select OK.
Messages are sent to the System Transcript window indicating the progress of the load, which can take several minutes.
3. Be sure to save your image when prompted.
