Relative paths for supporting files

Postby Dunmail » Tue Nov 29, 2011 3:08 pm

Is there any way to use relative paths to reference supporting files? (e.g. post-gen sql scripts, csv data files etc)

This was logged as bug SDG-913 on SDG1 : http://www.red-gate.com/MessageBoard/viewtopic.php?t=11878

Hello Dunmail. SDG-913 is still open. There is a disagreement about whether or not we should do it based on a lot of trouble caused by implementing the same sort of thing in another program. Looks like full paths will have to do for now.

That's a pity - as we can't guarantee the location of the .sqlgen file we're effectively losing big chunks of the application functionality e.g. pre/post sql scripts, test data in CSV files etc.

We'll have to look at a different strategy for generating repeatable test data :(
