Remove the need for direct database connectivity from DevTest Workstation

    Ever since the introduction of DevTest 8+, every Workstation has had the requirement for direct database connectivity. In v7 and earlier, direct database connectivity was a pre-requisite, but Workstation was able to work without it.

     

    In environments where Workstation is in a protected domain and can't access the database directly, dirty workarounds are needed.

     

    All database fields that Workstation needs to interact with are also seen by Registry, so I would like to see Workstation use middleware calls to access this information rather than have direct database connection.
