I've screwed around with this for over 1/2 hour and I still can't figure it out - which probably just means I'm stupid. But still, it seems that this should be a simple operation.
I'm using RubyMine 4.5.4 with a MySQL database. Everything is all hooked up and working fine. All I am trying to do is to use the Database Tool Window (DTW) to access my existing databases and for the life of me I cannot figure out how to do so. The documentation for this is essentially worthless because it doesn't tell me how to accomplish this simple task and it gives no examples of what one should enter in the various fields.
From the doc it seems that I should be able to right-click in the DTW, select "Add Data Source" and then if I choose "Import from Project Files..." the IDE should automatically be able to glean this information from my project files (database.yml, I'm assuming). The first thing that goes wrong here is that there are "..." at the end of the menu option, which is supposed to indicate that a dialog box is forthcoming. But one never shows up; instead, a box just pops up that says "No data sources" found.
So I tried to select the "DB Data Source" option. But when I did it seems that that is geared towards JDBC, which I don't use. Am I supposed to enter something into the "Database URL" field? If so, what? I tried entering various things in there (along with filling out the User Name and Password fields) but the "Test Connection" button never gets enabled, so I can't use that to see if what I am entering works.
Can someone please tell me how to do this? This is sooo frustrating it's not even funny. It seems like a simple right-click and filling in a few fields should be all that is needed, instead of spending almost an hour trying to figure out what to do by googling the web and searching this forum.
