I have been searching the web trying to find out if any one has connect Microstation to Postgresql, and to my surprise there has not been alot of chatter on ways to do this.. When looking at the database connection window in V8i I see no postgresql connection. Does anyone know a way to make this connection?
Using Microstation v8i
required: [Postgres ODBC Driver installed]
only options are ODBC Oracle OLEDB BUDBC
[ODBC} Open Microstation Settings>Database Connect to Database click search (magnifying glass) Select Data Source Machine Data Source New> PostgresSQL35W (unicode) [Postgres Driver required] environment/user/password settings
Postgres Connection Test successful.
See online documentation: http://docs.bentley.com/en/MicroStation/hh_goto.htm#hh_toc.htm
Additional Information (after installing the Postgres driver)
Can be viewed in Control Panel\System and Security\Administrative Tools >ODBC Data Source Administrator (Windows 7)
In addition to what Mapperz discovered, is possible to set up a WFS connection (if you have a WFS server) and consume it in Bentley Map (through Map Interoperability).
