Find a a string in database
Posted on 2010-04-01
Hello, I have an MVC framework and I am not sure which queries are dumping the data into which tables. I am only aware of the database. So as a process of reverse engineering, I am trying to insert a few marker values and try to retreive the tables into which they were inserted by using these marker values. But now I want to know if this is possible??
Let us consider a database as a folder, so is a recursive search possible in a database, which would skim through all the tables, and their columns in the database and return the result where some column value matches the marker. I know this is a tedious process, this is only part of reverse engineering and would not be in the production instance.
