The syntax for the SQL is as required by the underlying database. The workspace supports an optional ISQLSyntax interface that provides information to applications on aspects of the SQL Syntax for the underlying database.

To determine if a workspace supports the ExecutesSQL method, an application can check the value of the canExecuteSQLworkspace property via the optional IWorkspaceProperties interface. In general, this method is only supported on local and remote database workspaces.

Product Availability

Available with ArcGIS Engine, ArcGIS Desktop, and ArcGIS Server.

Supported Platforms

Windows, Solaris, Linux

Specified by:
executeSQL in interface IWorkspace
Parameters:
sqlStmt - The sqlStmt (in)
Throws:
IOException - If there are interop problems.
AutomationException - If the ArcObject component throws an exception.

openTable

public ITable openTable(String name)
                 throws IOException,
                        AutomationException
Opens an existing table.

Remarks

The OpenTable method can be used to open any existing table or object class in the workspace given its fully qualified name. The table object returned will always support the ITable interface. The returned table object will support additional interfaces depending on the type of table. For example, object classes will additionally support the IObjectClass interface.
Use the IDatabaseConnectionInfo interface to determine the User and Database (if applicable). ISQLSyntax::QualifyTableName can be used to determine the fully qualified name for a table. Use the NameExists method on the IWorkspace2 interface to determine if a table with the appropriate name exists in a geodatabase.
Some examples of how to use the name parameter of OpenTable are shown below:

For Coverage feature classes:
cover:feature("stream:arc")
For info tables:
cover:feature("stream.aat")
For Oracle tables:
gdb.Owners
For SQLServer tables:
fdo_data.gdb.Owners
For Informix tables:
bladetest2:gdb.Owners
The 4 tables associated with a Topology; T_#_DirtyAreas, T_#_PolyErrors, T_#_LineErrors and T_#_PointErrors cannot be directly edited. For this reason they cannot be opened and will fail with a general Geodatabase error.

Product Availability

Available with ArcGIS Engine, ArcGIS Desktop, and ArcGIS Server.

Supported Platforms

Windows, Solaris, Linux

Specified by:
openTable in interface IFeatureWorkspace
Parameters:
name - The name (in)
Returns:
A reference to a com.esri.arcgis.geodatabase.ITable
Throws:
IOException - If there are interop problems.
AutomationException - If the ArcObject component throws an exception.

createTable

public ITable createTable(String name,
                          IFields fields,
                          IUID cLSID,
                          IUID eXTCLSID,
                          String configKeyword)
                   throws IOException,
                          AutomationException
Creates a new table.

Remarks

The CreateTable method can be used to create a new table or object class in the workspace.

The optional CLSID and EXTCLSID parameters allow the calling application to specify the GUIDs for the objects that implement the instance and the class extension behavior for an object class. If no CLSID is passed in, then the resulting table is not registered in the geodatabase object class data dictionary (It will support the IObjectClass interface but will have an ObjectClassID of –1). Valid values for CLSID are esriGeoDatabase.Object or any non-spatial object that extends esriGeoDatabase.Object. CLSID must be set in order to apply a class extension with the EXTCLSID parameter.

The Fields object passed to the Fields parameter should not be an object retrieved from another class. If the new class is going to have the same fields as an existing class, cast the existing class' fields collection to the IClone interface, clone it, and use the cloned fields collection as input for this method.

The optional configurationKeyword parameter allows the application to control the physical layout for this table in the underlying RDBMS. For example, in an Oracle database, the configuration keyword controls the tablespace in which the table is created, the initial and next extents, and other properties. The configuration keywords for an ArcSDE instance are set up by the ArcSDE data administrator, the list of available keywords supported by a workspace may be obtained using the IWorkspaceConfiguration interface. For more information on configuration keywords, refer to the ArcSDE documentation.

Note: Table or feature class names with the following prefixes are not supported:

openFeatureClass

public IFeatureClass openFeatureClass(String name)
                               throws IOException,
                                      AutomationException
Opens an existing feature class.

Remarks

The OpenFeatureClass method can be used to open any existing feature class in the workspace given its fully qualified name. Note that every feature class in a geodatabase has a unique fully qualified name, and the OpenFeatureClass method can be used to directly open feature classes that are part of a feature dataset (the feature dataset name does not need to be specified).

Use the IDatabaseConnectionInfo interface to determine the User and Database (if applicable). ISQLSyntax::QualifyTableName can be used to determine the fully qualified name for a feature class. Use the NameExists method on the IWorkspace2 interface to determine if a feature class with the appropriate name exists in a geodatabase.

Opening a feature class that participates in a topology or geometric network will also open all other feature classes participating in the topology or geometric network in memory.

Some examples of how to use the Name parameter of OpenFeatureClass are shown below:

For Coverage feature classes:
buildings:polygon
For Oracle feature classes (the owner prefix is unnecessary if you are connected as the owner of the feature class):
gdb.Buildings
For SQLServer feature classes:
fdo_data.gdb.Buildings
For Informix feature classes:
bladetest2:gdb.Buildings
For VPF feature classes:
ks032193:veg:vgfarea (library:coverage:feature class)
The library name for VPF data is case sensitive and must appear as it is stored in the LAT (Library Attribute Table)
The 4 tables associated with a Topology; T_#_DirtyAreas, T_#_PolyErrors, T_#_LineErrors and T_#_PointErrors cannot be directly edited. For this reason they cannot be opened and will fail with a general Geodatabase error.

createFeatureClass

public IFeatureClass createFeatureClass(String name,
                                        IFields fields,
                                        IUID cLSID,
                                        IUID eXTCLSID,
                                        int featureType,
                                        String shapeFieldName,
                                        String configKeyword)
                                 throws IOException,
                                        AutomationException
Creates a new standalone feature class under the workspace.

Remarks

The CreateFeatureClass method can be used to create a stand-alone feature class that is not part of a feature dataset. It takes, in addition to all the parameters that CreateTable takes, an esriFeatureType parameter that specifies the category of features to be stored in this feature class (i.e., esriFTSimple, esriFTComplexEdgeFeature) and a shape field name. The shape field name identifies the name of the field in the input fields collection that represents the shape field for the feature class.

The Fields object passed to the Fields parameter should not be an object retrieved from another class. If the new class is going to have the same fields as an existing class, cast the existing class' fields collection to the IClone interface, clone it, and use the cloned fields collection as input for this method.

The GeometryDef object associated with the shape field object must be fully setup with a spatial reference, grid properties, and the geometry type before calling CreateFeatureClass.

The following esriGeometryType enumeration values represent the valid geometry types for a new feature class' GeometryDef object: esriGeometryPoint, esriGeometryMultipoint, esriGeometryPolyline, esriGeometryPolygon, and esriGeometryMultiPatch.

If the feature class is being created in geodatabase then the fields collection must contain, at a minimum, an Object ID field and a Shape field. The required fields can be obtained from the class description for the type of object you wish to create (see the RequiredFields property on IObjectClassDescription).

The CLSID parameter is used to specify what type of feature will be contained by the class. If a null value is passed in for the CLSID, the geodatabase will return Feature instances from the class. In most cases, this is the desired behavior. If the feature class is used to store custom features, the GUID of the custom feature should be provided. Alternatively, the IClassSchemaEdit interface can be used to change the feature class' CLSID following creation.

The EXTCLSID parameter is used to specify what class will be instantiated as the feature class extension. This object must at least support the IClassExtension interface. If a null value is passed in for the EXTCLSID parameter, the feature class will not have a class extension associated with it. Since class extensions are not required, this is often the desired behavior. If the feature class should have an associated extension, the GUID of the class extension should be provided. Alternatively, the IClassSchemaEdit interface can be used to associate a class extension following creation.

The configurationKeyword parameter allows the application to control the physical layout for this table in the underlying RDBMS. For example, in the case of an Oracle database, the configuration keyword controls the tablespace in which the table is created, the initial and next extents, and other properties. The configuration keywords for an ArcSDE instance are set up by the ArcSDE data administrator, and the list of available keywords supported by a workspace may be obtained using the IWorkspaceConfiguration interface. For more information on configuration keywords, refer to the ArcSDE documentation.

If the workspace the feature class will be created in is a pre-9.2 geodatabase, you must ensure the GeometryDef references a low precision spatial reference. 9.1 and earlier versions of the geodatabase only support low precision spatial references, while 9.2 geodatabases require high precision spatial references. Use IControlPrecision2::IsHighPrecision to manage the precision level of the spatial reference used to create the feature class. Use the IGeodatabaseRelease interface to determine the release of the geodatabase.

                                          AutomationException
Opens an existing feature dataset.

Remarks

The OpenFeatureDataset method can be used to open any existing feature dataset in the workspace given its fully qualified name. At ArcGIS release 8.1 and higher, opening a feature dataset does not automatically instantiate all the feature classes in the feature dataset.

Use the IDatabaseConnectionInfo interface to determine the User and Database (if applicable). ISQLSyntax::QualifyTableName can be used to determine the fully qualified name for a feature dataset.

                                            AutomationException
Creates a new feature dataset.

Remarks

The CreateFeatureDataset method can be used to create a new FeatureDataset given its name and spatial reference. Methods supported by the returned feature dataset allow creation of feature classes in the feature dataset.

If the workspace the FeatureDataset will be created in is a pre-9.2 Geodatabase, you must ensure the spatial reference is a low precision spatial reference. 9.1 and earlier versions of the Geodatabase only support low precision spatial references, while 9.2 Geodatabases require high precision spatial references. Use IControlPrecision2::IsHighPrecision to manage the precision level of the spatial reference used to create the FeatureDataset. Use the IGeodatabaseRelease interface to determine the release of the geodatabase

                                                  AutomationException
Creates a new relationship class.

Remarks

The CreateRelationshipClass method can be used to create a new stand-alone relationship class that is not part of a feature dataset. The relationship class is implemented as a separate data table whose name is the name of the relationship class if the cardinality is many-to-many or if the relationship class is attributed. The relAttribFields parameter is optional, and a null value may be passed in for non-attributed relationship classes.

Many-to-many or attributed relationship classes require specification of all four key fields—the OriginPrimaryKey and the destPrimaryKey parameters are the primary key fields for the origin and destination object classes. The OriginForeignKey and destForeignKey parameters are the names of the corresponding foreign keys that will be created in the data table representing the relationship class. If the relationship class is one-to-one or one-to-many and not attributed, then the relationship class is implemented as a foreign key field in the destination object class (the OriginForeignKey) that references the primary key field in the origin object class (the OriginPrimaryKey). In this case, the OriginPrimaryKey, the OriginForeignKey, and the destPrimaryKey must be supplied.

The Fields object passed to the relAttrFields parameter should not be an object retrieved from another class. If the new class is going to have the same fields as an existing class, cast the existing class' fields collection to the IClone interface, clone it, and use the cloned fields collection as input for this method.

The set of properties for the dataset.

Description

The PropertySet property is used to return any additional intrinsic properties (but not metadata properties) that may apply to the dataset. One use of this property is to distinguish between the types of File Geodatabase datafile formats. If called on a Feature Class or Table in a File Geodatabase the Datafile Format property can either be esriFGDBStandardDatafile or esriFGDBCompressedDatafile.

Most datasets do not implement this property and will either raise an error or return a null value if it's called. There are a handful of exceptions that will return property sets; these include the datasets from file geodatabases (as mentioned above) and coverages.

Remarks

Examples of intrinsic properties for which explicit methods exist include the SpatialReference and the Extent methods available on the IGeoDataset interface. In most cases this PropertySet will be empty.

IDataset::PropertySet is not supported for Graph objects such as a Geometric Network.

                           AutomationException
Given a table name, determine its qualification parts.

Remarks

Applications should use the ParseTableName method to split the fully qualified name of a table into its components (database, owner, table). ParseTableName can also be used to return the components of any fully qualified name of a dataset such as feature classes, feature datasets, geometric networks and topologies.

Applications that wish to be RDBMS independent should not assume that ‘.’ is the delimiter used to separate the components of a fully qualified dataset name. Use the QualifyTableName method to determine the qualified name of a dataset for a given workspace.

The FullName parameter refers to the fully qualified name of the dataset and is returned by the IDataset::Name property for a dataset in a geodatabase and the IDatasetName::Name property for a dataset name object. Both methods return the fully qualified name for the dataset.

Empty strings will be returned for arguments that do not apply to the underlying DBMS. For example, supplying a FullName parameter of "MyTable" to a Personal or File Geodatabase will result in:

dbName = ""

ownerName = ""

TableName = "MyTable"

While supplying a FullName parameter of "gdb.MyTable" to an ArcSDE Geodatabase on Oracle will result in:

                            AutomationException
Given a column name, determine its qualification parts.

Remarks

Applications should use the ParseColumnName method to split the fully qualified name for a column in a table into its components (database, owner, table, column).

Applications that wish to be RDBMS independent should not assume that ‘.’ is the delimiter used to separate the components of a fully qualified dataset name. Use the QualifyColumnName method to determine the qualified name of a column of a table for a given workspace.

The FullName paramter can be returned from the IDataset::Name property for a dataset in a Geodatabase and the IDatasetName::Name property for a dataset name object. Both methods return the fully qualified name for the dataset (the name object for the dataset is itself obtained using the IDataset::FullName property).

Empty strings will be returned for arguments that do not apply to the underlying DBMS. For example, supplying a FullName parameter of "gdb.Greeley_Parcels_1.AREA" to an ArcSDE Geodatabase on Oracle will result in:
