Title: RE: [xml-dev] Web Services Best Practice (was: Interesting XML-DI ST-APP thread)
awfully easy with MS Access to build a database that works
locally, and won't scale. The GUI tool is a boon though. We
hundreds of requests for ad hoc querying for our systems. We
them that a third party report generator (Access, Crystal Reports, etc)
way to go. ODBC is a pretty nice idea all things being equal.
not DBAs, many of our customers really shouldn't
to understand everything they are doing; they should understand
they need to do.
the schema document sucks, even that falls apart.
Seems analogous to the argument that DBAs who use GUI
tools don't really understand what they're actually doing.
Seems to me that RAD and drag and drop development leads you
this path, you are developing so 'quickly' that
you don't step
back and look at the architectural
issues until it's too late.
