BCS Install Eclipse Juno 64 bit

Many of you know I am an avid Eclipse fan. I prefer Eclipse IDE over many of the commercial IDE’s for PhP for numerous reasons. The first step of using Eclipse SDK 4.2 is to download it from the Eclipse web site.

Another link worth looking at is the Eclipse Juno home page.

Download and install Juno and you are ready to begin PhP development.

I recommend Yii framework for agile development of web site using model view controller (MVC) design pattern.

I recommend installing the Eclipse Marketplace in the Juno installation.

BCS Select Distinct Date From DateTime

There are those occasions when the distinct date needs to be displayed from date time values. Considerable coding and displaying results via a list box control is one way to accomplish this feat.

On the other hand you could let SQL handle the gory details. In an ADO situation the following statement handles the request quite nicely.

select distinct CAST(datafieldname as date) from databasetable

The result set will contain distinct dates for the target table.
