Exasol in virtual environment
It’s a good idea to setup a separate Exasol instance for tests in virtual environment. You may run it on your local laptop, remote server or in the cloud.
There are two possible installation options available:
Please note that Docker version only works on Linux at this moment. Docker for MacOS and Docker for Windows are not supported.
I use schema called
EXASECRETS for tests and code samples provided in this blog.
In order to create this schema, please run following SQL statement:
CREATE SCHEMA EXASECRETS;
For testing purposes I assume that Exasol instance has following connection string and credentials:
dsn = localhost:8563 user = SYS password = exasol schema = EXASECRETS
Some examples involving Python might use PyEXASOL package. Please install it using following simple command:
pip install pyexasol
