**Database Views**



This is a proposal to assume the Grouper registry runs in a database that supports views. This will permit re-use of SQL logic and allow for simpler queries. A consequence of this change is that Grouper would not work on a database that does not support views.


Right now the MySQL, Postgress,  Oracle, and HSQL all support views.


Question about MSSQL:  Does it support views? 

U. Chicago is using Grouper with MSSQL. Chris added MSSQL to the list of supported databases in the release steps:


Decision: Move in the direction of relying on database views in Grouper IF this is supported by MSSQL. 


MSSQLServer supports views.
