Database is a physical file containing globals.

Namespace is a logical combination of one or more databases.

By default Namespace has two databases:

  • GLOBALS - default location for globals
  • ROUTINES - default location for code (classes/routines/includes)

In addition to that, namespace can have any amount of mappings. Mappings map specified globals/code from a specified database.

When you try to access a global, first global mappings are searched for this global, if no mappings are found, the GLOBALS database is used.

When you try to access some code, first package/routine mappings are searched for this code, if no mappings are found, the ROUTINES database is used.

To split data innto a separate DB:

  1. Create target DB.
  2. Make source DB RO (by forcefully logging users out for example and/or marking it as RO).
  3. Copy data/code from the source to target DB (for globals use ^GBLOCKCOPY).
  4. Create mapping from the target DB to your namespace.
  5. Confirm that data is present.
  6. Delete data from a source DB.
