Databridge Installation issue for DW CC 2017

When I attempt to install the latest extension 'WADataBridge123.zxp' using Extension Manager CC, an error is reported;

"This extension cannot be installed, it requires dreamweaver version 9 or greater."

Any ideas hoot resolve please?

You need to use the free extension manager from DMXZone or Project 7. Adobe has dropped support for the extension manager in CC.

WA Recordet Wizard

After installing the free extension manager from DMXZone, i have the server behaviours, bindings and database panels in place.

I am not able to create new recordets using the recordset wizard though!

For example if expand the tables in Database Items and select a table, it wont add it to the SQL.

Is there a fix for this?
Is it linked to the Dreamweaver CC 2017 update?

I also found this statement on DMXZone 's website (as a WebAssist & DW CC 2017 product owner, is worrying)

"We would like to remind you that Server Behaviors have been deprecated for quite some time and for a very good reason. They use an outdated connection method that's been deprecated in the current release of PHP and very soon will be removed completely, which means that your websites will no longer work."

The table tree doesn't work anymore. It was broken in an earlier version of CC 2017. You can still create recordsets in the Simple interface or by writing the SELECT statement manually.

You can install the WebAssist MySQLi server behaviors which use the new connection method, we also have included a query builder component where you can drag and drop to build your SQL statement. It is better than the old tree control that no longer works.

Not let's address that warning message. The old connection method has been dropped for PHP 7. So only if you choose to upgrade your server to a version of php above 7 will your site not work. You are in control of that so your website won't just suddenly stop working.

Many hosting companies still offer sites in PHPv 5. PHP5 is actually the default in a lot of hosting environments and it was released in 2004. It is supported by all major hosting providers in my experience. Realistically hosting companies will take longer than usual to force people to upgrade to PHPv7 because of the drastic changes in database connection support... and "usual" seems to be about 15 years.

So... realistically speaking you may have problems finding a major host to run your site in a decade or two if you continue to use the old style connecitons. Not quite as dire as the message implies.

On my fact check scale I would rate that warning "misleading but technically true"
