System Req.

Aqua Data Studio is a complete Integrated Development Environment (IDE) for database developers. It provides four major areas of functionality: 1) Database query and administration tools; 2) a suite of compare tools for databases, source control and file systems; 3) a complete and integrated source control client for Subversion (SVN) and CVS; and 4) a database modeler as powerful as the best standalone database diagramming tools.

New features in v9

Open APIs and AquaScripts

ADStudio breaks new ground for Relational Database tools with the introduction of the Aqua Open APIs, a JavaScript based language called AquaScript and a full-fledged Integrated Development Environment (IDE). Users will now have API access to nearly all of ADStudio's built-in functionality and be able to create fully automated end-to-end solutions.

AquaScripts are executed within ADStudio using the Mozilla Rhino engine. The AquaScript language itself is standardised by Standard ECMA-357 ECMAScript for XML (E4X): A general purpose, cross-platform programming language. Any script executed has full access to the Java API in addition to the Aqua Open API. Scripts may also access any other proprietary or Open Source Java libraries included in the Java Virtual Machine (JVM) classpath.

New database support: Netezza

Native support has been added for Netezza 5.0 & 6.0.
