Connect to non-graphical tabular database data in gvSIG
Being used to commercial GIS software, I was looking around for the option to connect to a non-graphical database table in the gvSIG OADE 2010 application window. I failed to locate the command. Later on, I saw that the command is contained in the Project Manager window - a child form within the main gvSIG application window. Once I found it, it was quite easy to connect to the non-graphical database table as shown in the dbf example below.
