Description : Jint command will be used to initialize Javascript Object which we can use to perform available commands same as Javascript syntax.

For eg.

You can write and run javascript commands (and scripts in ,js files) allowing you to code iteratation over a dataset (querydb), alter the data (in a csv for example) and automate region creation and various other commands.

The command is


to switch into javascript coding mode.

You can write a js file and execute using the file path parameter

> jint "pathtofile/file.js"

Here is a sample script that queries a "customers" table for any customers that have a flag set and then for each of those it creates a data island "region" and pushes up the customers "orders" to an island.

var result = di.connect("youraccount","yourpassword");

var table = di.querydb("select top 2 * from customers where hasregionflag='Y'");

for(var x=0;x<table.Rows.Count;x++)


   var fieldValue = table.Rows[x]['CustomerID'];


   var qorders=di.querydb("select * from Orders where customerid='"+fieldValue+"'");



'''More Examples'''

a. Accessing Column names

var table = di.querydb("select top 2 * from customers where hasregionflag='Y'");

for(var x=0;x<table.Columns.Count;x++)


   var _colName= table.Columns[x].ColumnName;



b. Altering data before pushing - you can add a column and alter existing

var table = di.querydb("select * from customers");


///adds a column to the dataset

for(var x=0;x<table.Rows.Count;x++) {

var fieldValueID = table.Rows[x]['CustomerID'];

var fieldValueCode = table.Rows[x]['CustomerCode'];

table.Rows[x]['SomeCustomfield']=fieldValueID+fieldValueCode; //composite field


///pass in the altered dataset

di.push("customers", table);
