Database Interface Designer should take care of all character sets, and not only the obsolete ones

Currently (in 8.4.1.2 and earlier), Database Interface Designer cannot be told to use character sets other than the "historic" ones. It is of course possible to convert the type trees later, but would be better not to have to.

Make the "use ellipses button" a display option

The Map Designer provides a way to use ellipses when draggin'-n-dropin' type references into a rule. This is very nice to make rules more compact and usually improves readability. However, "getting back" to the referenced type is sometimes an issu...

Add JDBC importer to Design Studio(Eclipse) or Database interface Designer
