Highlight of the release
- Foreign keys and relationships between tables
This is a highly expected feature. We are introducing relationships between tables in Play SQL 3.0.
How to create a Foreign Key?
Choose a table, and click on a column that you want to make as a Foreign key.
Click on the key icon.
|Select the targeted table.|
|Select a column from the targeted table as a display field.|
How to display another column, the original foreign key's values or remove it ?
Once a foreign key exists, you can remove the 2 parts of it:
|Remove the renderer only.|
Depress the "+" button:
|Remove the foreign key entirely.|
How to display the linked records?
Click on the "Form" tab.
It displays the rows referring to the current recording.
By clicking on the foreign keys, we can navigate from one table to another.
A path is displayed above, we can click on a breadcrumb to go backwards.
