Bird's eye view of the process

What's this?

On this page, you will get a bird's eye view of the process of designing an Emdros database.

How do I design an Emdros database?

  1. Create a schema. This will be in the form of a script with MQL statements.

  2. Create the database from the schema. This involves either putting the MQL Schema script through the mql(.exe) program, or feeding it to an open Emdros database connection in a program. The latter can be done through an object of the EmdrosEnv class.

  3. Populate the database with data.

It's that easy. And that complex, because steps (1) and (3) are not always easy. But this guide will tell you the nuts and bolts of how to do it.
