Application Security Testing: An Integral Part of DevOps

Creating Databases at Runtime

I am designing an application that should be able to create new databases in the specific format that it expects to see. I have not seen anything anywhere on how to create custom databases on the fly. Is it possible?

It's not particularly well documented, but it does work, as I've done it. CreateDatabase is where you start. You can then add tables to the TableDefs collection...that should be documented, as well as adding fields to each of the tables. The other alternative you may want to consider is to send out a "starter" database that could be copied to a new filename instead of starting from scratch.
