Starting to use @Note
Choose Database Configuration
The first time you run @Note2, a Database access Panel appears and user must choose between default database access (Simple Embedded Database Configuration) or Advanced configuration.
Note: In case of non-expert @Note2 user we advise the use of the Simple Configuration.
Advanced Database Configuration
This panel presents the Database configuration. Here, you must fill the database access credentials in the Add New Database Connection Section (in blue) and press the Add Database to archive button with check box Use as Primary Database as true. You can choose the database name, host , port, root-user and his password. If the Database configuration is correct, it will be added to the database archive (in red) as the default database to be used (in orange). The text on the lower button will change from Exit @Note2 to Restart @Note2. If you click this button and restart, the application will restart with the new database active and @Note will be ready to work.
Alternatively to the Database configuration panel, a properties loader panel can be used. This panel allows the loading of a Database configuration from a configuration file. You can choose a file that has the previous database configuration on the popup panel. After that, the text on the lower button in the database table will change to Restart @Note2. If you click this button and restart, the application will restart with the new database active and @Note will be ready to work.
To change the database please see Preferences Database Management section
