Load Schemas Programmatically

Status: New



It would be nice if there were an easy means of programmatically loading a database schema for result processing.


Here's my context for asking:

We have a custom database schema that must be loaded on all of our stations and we'd prefer that it "just works" when our customized database result processing plugin is loaded.


I managed to accomplish this by studying the format of TestStandDatabaseSchemas.ini and writing a parser to insert our schema as necessary. This was a bit painful, though, and the possibility of the format changing without notice has crossed my mind.


Thanks as usual to the R&D team.  (Assuming this idea gets some traction!  Smiley Wink)


Kind regards,


Mr. Jim
