A Z SQL Method uses a template (in fact a DTML template with additional
commands) to construct a command (in fact a sequence of commands)
to a database from the arguments provided and its context.
Thus, you have 2 options:
1. if your operations fall into well defined classes
easily described by a DTML template with arguments,
then you define a Z SQL method for each of these templates.
Arguments: TableName ColumnName ColumnType
MODIFY <dtml-var TableName>
ADD COLUMN <dtml-var ColumnName> <dtml-var ColumnType>
2. otherwise, you define a very general Z SQL method
and build your "command" with any appropriate tool
(e.g. an external method or Python script)
and pass it as a parameter.
Be *VERY* careful, not to make such a Z SQL method accessible
from the Internet, as it allows very malicious operations
on your system!
You will probably go for option 1.
