- It is easier to run Squirrel from your PC or Mac and point it at the Sandbox Phoenix server (make sure ports are open). If you installed the Linux version on the sandbox, you will need to be in the VM graphical UI to see Squirrel Sql run as it is a GUI program and not a Web UI.
- SQuirreL SQL is a client for accessing SQL databases through a user-friendly GUI (graphical user interface). Because SQuirreL SQL is written in the Java programming language, it can run on any computer with a JVM (Java Virtual Machine).
Versions of SQuirreL with individual plugins. The correct version of each available plugin is always provided in the SQuirreL SQL Client install jar. To install a Plugin hosted on other sitesessentially all you need to do is to drop the Plugin files into the plugin/ directory of your SQuirreL SQL installtion directory. For further details. Sep 27, 2013 A query like ‘select. from PUB.customer;’ can then be entered, to run the SQL query click on the running man button or press the keyboard buttons Ctrl and Enter simultaneously. (For OpenEdge versions prior to version 10.1A the DLC variable needs to be set before launching the SQuirreL SQL Client.).

Update this to
