This syntax cannot span lines. The following list points out what you can do with this syntax and what you should pay attention to.

  • It can be used to generate the value of any existing parameter. The generated value should not be enclosed by quotation marks.

  • No space char is allowed after </ or before />.

  • Inside this syntax, the <%...%> or <%=...%> syntax should not be used.

The statement written in the below example is a valid one.

#sql sentence
DROP TABLE temp_</TABLE_NAME/>;

The statement identifies the TABLE_NAME parameter and then removes the corresponding table.

For more information on the <%...%> syntax, see The <%...%> syntax.

For more information on the <%=...%> syntax, see The <%=...%> syntax.

The following sections present more specific code used to access more complicated parameters.

Note:

Parameters that the SQL templates can access with this syntax are simple. They are often used for connection purpose and can be easily defined in components, such as TABLE_NAME, DB_VERSION, SCHEMA_TYPE, etc.
