Also make Connections GLOBAL, for all Projects.

Postby rethus » Tue Mar 19, 2013 11:56 am

If i add a Connection, it is always assigned to the actualy choosen Project.

Is there a way to make a connection usable for all Project (or more than one choosed)?
In my case, i have a local DB for development-enviroment, and a live-db on my server.
Local-DB should now assign to many different Project, without the need to copy it for each of them.

I'm afraid it won't be so easy. Connection itself doesn't belong to soem particular project (besides connections configuration file datasources.xml which lives in some project).
But you may create SQL scripts, ER diagrams and other artifacts which are persisted in a project.

I may suggest you to create all database related stuff in some separate project.
In any case you may work with connection from any project and "active project" is just DBeaver-specific term, it doesn't change anything in standard Eclipse workspace.
