Polaris not working against an embedded store

Mar 9, 2014 at 4:06 AM
I have an embedded store in my application. I'd like to use Polaris to ensure the data is really being written to the store.

When I run Polaris, I choose "embedded" when I create my connection. No errors given. However, the "Store" menu item is not active, and I can't enter a query in the window, or interact with Polaris to see any data.

Is Polaris supposed to work with an embedded store?

Polaris is supposed to work with an embedded store, but it will need to be the only application connected to the store. If the app you are testing is running at the same time then it may well have the data files locked, stopping Polaris from getting access. If that is the case, and you want to support this scenario, the easiest thing to do is to run a B* server and have both your app and Polaris talk to the server using a REST connection - you can always change the connection string back to an embedded one when you are ready to deploy / ship your app.
