The Query Interface has been developed such that all configuration files, data sources, definitions, pre-defined queries etc. can be stored centrally, enabling easy deployment and updating. Users have the option to save their personal queries locally or share access to queries with other users. If results have underlying data, such as aggregated values or metadata, the user can drill-down to display additional information. The datasets returned are available for use with all StarDrop™ functionality for visualisation and analysis.

Data sources

StarDrop’s Query Interface has been developed so that multiple data sources can be configured with each data source queried independently. These data sources can include:

  • Direct database connections (e.g. ODBC) – Oracle, MySQL, etc.
  • Flat files
  • Web services
  • Anything into which StarDrop can pass a query and receive results
