Populate the SaadaDB

Were are now going to load one catalog in our SaadaDB. The data table is taken from the XMM-Newton survey of the Local Group galaxy M 33 (Pietch at al. Astron. Astrophys. 426, 11 (2004)).

 Start the SaadaDB administration tool
- Go in the SaadaDB bin directory.
- Run the administration tool.

% cd  myFirstStepWithSaada/saadadbs/MySaadaDB/bin
% ./admintool

The administration window opens. We are now to use basic features.
