Web-based clients include Invantive Cloud, Invantive Bridge Online as OData proxy, Invantive App Online for interactive apps, Online SQL Editor for query execution and Invantive Data Access Point as extended proxy.

An introduction into the concepts of Invantive SQL such as databases, data containers and partitioning can be found in the Invantive SQL grammar.
The configuration can be changed using various attributes from the database definition, on log on and during use. A full list of configuration options is listed in the driver attributes.

For example, the view SystemTables@DataDictionary contains every available table and view in the current database. Besides object definitions also actual execution information is available in views. For example, the view SystemSqlArea@DataDictionary contains all executed and cached Invantive SQL statements. The data in the data dictionary views is generated dynamically by Invantive SQL from the runtime environment. Changing data in the data dictionary views is not possible.
