Method for the public select statements

Access rights for the public SELECT statements follow a different route from the method which was described in the previous section. This route is different, because the parsing of a complex SELECT statement (placing elements of the SQL query into the record object) is too complicated. In this case SELECT statements are not handled by the meta_user but by the real user with his direct database connection. They are executed on the views located in the user schema. User can access only these views which are created in his schema. Each view contains only those rows and columns that the user is allowed to access (on the basis of his access rights).
