Getting started

Before you use Domino® Query Language (DQL), create the equivalent of an internal design catalog in each database against which query requests are processed. The design catalog is maintained in hidden documents within a database and provides a high-speed mechanism to find critical design data at runtime.

About this task

DQL processing uses extracted, optimized design data in a design catalog to make intelligent choices about query plans and to work with some of its syntactic elements like view names.


To add the design catalog to a database, use the following updall command:
load updall <mydb.nsf> -e

What to do next
