  How do I get a dump of all the table  from a solidDB database?

The document say that you could use the describe command but I get an error


ADMIN COMMMAND 'describe dept';

SOLID SQL Error 1: syntax error (line 1 near 'DESCRIBE')

    If you mean by dump to take a backup of all the database then you should issue the command
    ADMIN COMMAND 'backup'  (see the following manual :)

    However if you issue the
    ADMIN COMMAND 'describe param'
    command then it will return a description of all parameters or a parameter specified with param.

    In your case you have written COMMMAND but it should be COMMAND. :)
