Hello Jason,

so do you suggest to set the Database propery instead of DatabaseName? Will that one behave same way as I described?

My application setup pack is ready to deliver, shall I change it? I kindly hope not having to :)

I did this as a convenience but a person really should use the Database
property for this and reserve the DatabaseName property for the more user
friendly way to refer to a database.

The way this started is I had the DatabaseName property reflect the fully
qualified database connect string if the user friendly one wasn't provided.
People somehow got the idea this was where you assigned the value and so it
just stuck.

Now I will speak here about two database connections, remote and local
(anybody has more ideas? :-).

> Well, seems like it works the intelligent way. Anybody has suggestions
about setting that property be good or bad?
