Hello Roger,

What is Minq Software's vision with respect to database refactorings,
and how does this eventually come back in DB Visualizer.

Kind regards,

(I wrote a rather long reply to your question, unfortunately when I pressed "Submit" i got:

"Aaack! You caught us with our pants down! Here we are, tinkering with the servers and you show up. How awkward! Try back in just a minute... Sincerely, the red faced JavaRanch staff."

and my reply was lost...)

To summarize my reply: database refactoring is a really difficult task to fully automate. I think we may see some refactoring support in the future, what, how and when is yet to determine.

Best Regards

I'll file a complaint

If you've got time I'd still like to hear the long version...
