Free VistaDB Data Builder Download

OK, the headline is kind of misleading. Actually this is a minimal tool to edit the content of a VistaDB database.

Since the regular VistaDB Data Builder is only available for developers that purchase a license, but my web design co-workers need something to edit data inside an existing VDB5 or VDB4 database, I quickly assembled a very small .NET 4.0/2.0 WinForms application:

The application is as minimalistic as can be:

  • Only editing existing table content (new, edit, delete rows)
  • One main window with a list of tables and their content
  • SQL direct window for entering SQL queries and executing them to the grid with F5
  • Double click or right click for editing
  • One detail window to edit

The main window:

The details window:

If you do like the tool, just download and run it! I’m happy about any feedback from you 🙂

Upgrading a VistaDB 3 database to VistaDB 4.x

If you are using the .NET file-based database system VistaDB, and want to programmatically upgrade an existing .VDB3 database to a .VDB4 database, simply call the static VistaDBConnection.PackDatabase function.

I just finished adding the necessary code to our Test Management tool Zeta Test. I do a few more steps here:

  1. Copy the VDB3 file to a VDB4 file via the File.Copy function
  2. Rename the VDB3 file to a BACKUP file via the File.Move function
  3. Call the VistaDBConnection.PackDatabase function
