ObjectScript, IRIS, CACHE, upgrading and Java, Python, C++ whatever
Totally new to IRIS and Cache.
Trying to evaluate it and work out how we could use it.
As a standard application database. Object or relational etc. does not matter.
Issue is ObjectScript.
1) Can we develop, maintain and use an IRIS database and never use ObjectScript i.e. use only Java, Python, C++ interfaces etc. (exactly which one does not matter)? Would that make designing and using the IRIS database more prone to inefficiency and error?
2) Can we import an existing Cache database into IRIS and convert its ObjectScript code into Java, Python whatever? Is that a big, difficult, error-prone job?
If the answers are no that may not be a showstopper but would like to know it now.
A lot of training will be involved in any case I know and Oracle has PL/SQL but ObjectScript developers are rare.
Apologies if the answers are in the doco. Have read some of it but need some indication about the above urgently.
Thanks very much,
