Ahi and Team
In-place insert of row in result set ahi TBD 155262 Browse Specifications
Right now it brings up a separate dialog - very non-intuitive and unattractive. Need Excel-style in-place editing of new row. This is important, it leaves a very bad impression.
Export data from results as XML ahi TBD 154739 Browse specifications
Export data from results as CSV ahi TBD 154740 Browse specifications
Import data from CSV ahi TBD 154742 Browse specifications
A cool thing to do here is create the schema as part of import
Import data from XML ahi TBD 154741 Browse specifications

PRIORITY 3 - Nice To Have
Metadata API public davidvc Started M3 - stretch goal 155258
Allow database connections to have names not tied to URL john M3 144112 Lots of requests for this
Make it possible to browse to table directly from MySQL node mike Design - M2? 150660
Ability to filter tables for large schemas 153622 A performance issue. Need to think about how to design this.
Make columns sortable in DB Explorer 155345 Have gotten a number of requests for this. Currently hardcoded to sort by order in table.
Improve Add Column UI 155346
Create a text field above SQL editor that shows current delimiter 155349
Improve Create Table UI 155347 See SQLYog for inspiration. Includes support for auto-increment

After creating a connection, move focus to that connection 150659
Provide action to show procedure text from procedure node 145283
Execute stored procedure does nothing right now 155351 We should get rid of this action if it doesn't work
Provide action to view/edit SQL for a view 155354
Visual Database Explorer TBD 105075 This is basically a read-only E/R diagram. Will be done as a plugin for now.
Predefined code templates for SQL Editor davidvc TBD 152411 Would be great to have this in the code editors too, but that's extra credit.
Import data from JSON ahi 155352
Export data from results as JSON ahi 155353
Support for enable/disable autocommit on connection 65764 To avoid breaking the DB Explorer API, this change will need us to add connection pool support to the DB Explorer, so that autocommit can be set on a pooled connection without impacting other users of the DB connection
Show execution plan for MySQL jbaker 134212 Lots of votes for this - need to understand what this really means.
Matchbox support in results panel ahi 155174 There wasn't time for this in the last release, but is very useful for filtering results
Execute SQL without opening editor 136538 This is something Wen asked for as well. Should be pretty easy to do with SQLExecution API
Navigate foreign key relationships in results ahi 155355 Survey participant idea - very cool.
Completion in Java editor 155356
Set up ssh tunnel in NetBeans davidvc 155357 Supports access to remote services (web, database, debugger). Not sure if feasib
Export schema to SQL DDL davidvc 155358 DDLUtils may give us what we need here with little effort. I think what I want to do here is provide it as a plugin, get feedback, and perhaps incorporate in a followon release
Add a tab to DDL wizards to show resulting SQL as it's being built 155359 See Aqua Studio for an example of this
Make SQLExecution API public 90452 Could be useful to other modules. No specific request for it that I know of...
Better UI support for stored procedures 145284 Currently can't view, update or delete from explorer
Make metadata API public andrei 155258 Not sure if we have time for this, but it's the first step for templating/scripting support
Generate INSERT statements from result set ahi 155360 We already generate code for selected rows, but generating INSERT statement for entire resultset will be nice to have
Schema refactoring 155361 See liquibase refactoring tool, which we could integrate. Things like rename table, combine tables, split table, etc.
Show triggers and functions as well as procedures under a MySQL Connection 155362 See Aqua Studio for an example
Quick view of table info Not Staffed 134213 SqlYog has a nice feature where there is a tab called "Object Info" that shows the data for the selected object (table, index, view).
Quick view of column info Not Staffed 134214 SQLYog again: each column shows all the information without having to bring up a dialog
Full support for MySQL extensions in DDL wizards 155363 When it's a MySQL connection, add all the extra stuff to our wizards.
Support logging JDBC driver 155364 See log4jdbc
Versioning for SQL files 155365 Maybe we have this, but there are a lot of requests for it
Schema browse filters 153622 Some schemas are huge. Allow to filter what tables you pull down when browsing a schema

Detect SQL injection risks in PHP code 155370 This is actually a big issue for PHP developers

Read/write metadata API 155367 Support scripts that modify the db schema
SQL completion for keywords 140274 Start with Mysql
SQL completion for stored procedures 151282 Start with MySQL
