Foreign data wrapper

Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page

A data wrapper that provides access from within SQLstream s-Server to an external system, such as a remote database, via an adapter. You install these using the CREATE FOREIGN DATA WRAPPER command. This command installs the adapter within an s-Server application. Examples of these include reading tables out of a database or reading a comma-separated flat file.
