Application Security Testing: An Integral Part of DevOps

Indexing Remote Views

We have to connect VFP to SQL Server, and we have a lot of non-structural index files for tables. We've created remote views for the tables and need to attach the non-structural indexes to the views. But we are not able to share the indexes. Why?

Views (remote and local) are not tables. They are cursors. They are temporary buffered cursors that present a subset of backend information. Because they are cursors, any indexes you create against them are deleted automatically when the view is closed. Therefore they cannot be shared.
