The configuration can be changed using various attributes during log on and use. A full list of configuration options is listed in the driver attributes.

The catalog name is used to compose the full qualified name of an object like a table or view. The schema name is used to compose the full qualified name of an object like a table or view. On XAF 3.2 the comparison of two texts is case sensitive by default.
