This tab has the following components:

  • Type   Shows the type of object.

  • Scope   Shows whether the external environment is launched as Connection (one per connection) or Database (one per database).

  • Supports result sets   Specifies whether the external environment can return result sets to the user. This option applies only to Perl and PHP.

  • Location   Specifies the directory on the database server computer where the executable/binary for the external environment can be found. Include the executable/binary name in the path.
