Thanks Stefan!

interesting.

are there any plans to publish the source code, so one can enhance the tools? I mean I can look at the code with Reflector.NET/ILSpy anyway, so why hiding?

Daniel: And thank you!

rva: The qv-user-manager tool is open source already. Check the readme for that one for details. 🙂

We have not decided on source access for the rest of the tools yet, but it will probably come up again. Thank you for your input!

The meta and shared files were always impossible for me to understand, so the SharedFileViewer will be very useful.

I was dissappointed that it didn't have the ability to extract a high level object list, but the ServerObjectHandler will help there.

Lastly, the XMLDBViewer helped me simplify the creation of a task list spreadsheet.

Thanks for the tools,

B

bnichol: Yes, insight into the .meta files (as well as the .shared) can be very useful sometimes.

This "high-level" list - what would it consist of? A list of object IDs and information on the same level only?

Hi Stefan,

                  Good to hear like solutions on BI Qlikview Tool.

Regards,

Ravi.

The high level list I was thinking of would include the object title or name.  Something more than ID.  'CH01' or 'BM03' are a little ambiguous.

Another suggestion: Sort the 'Select Document' pop-up box by 'Path\Document Name' on the 'Server Object Handler' tool.  I have 100+ documents and while it groups by path, the sorting on path is wrong (i.e Test\... before Quality\...).  Also, within the path grouping sort by Document name.

Thanks again for the tools,

B
