Accessing PVD data
« on: July 09, 2009, 01:26:02 am »
Hi!

I don't know if anyone asked this before. If so, i am sorry.

First of all, i love PVD. It is the most complete application out there and it is free. I thank nostra for that.  :)

I am thinking about writing (in a near future) an application that needs to access PVD data. This application would be external to PVD.
I want to know if:

a) There is any documentation available (table diagrams?) or any api (stored procedures?) to directly access the pvd database.
b) Is there a simple way to write an export plugin? If so, can it be written in any other language than delphi (like c# or java)?

I don't need an urgent answer, as i am just planning to start this in the end of July, but i would appreciate any possible help.

Thanks

I'll provide any information you need. The are some discussions on this topic on the forum, but nothing complete.
I recommend you to start with getting an application to work with Firebird databases, connect to one of the databases and take a look at the structure and such.

Plugins can be written in pretty any language that can produce dynamic linked libraries. I will try to provide a manual on writing export plugin as soon as possible.
