Mariana and Robert, if I may - the various 'databases' all have a similar requirement, that is to understand the best practice for the choice made. What is not always obvious is the power that Caché or IRIS brings that no other environment can match.
Applying good systems design architecture in Caché would in the long run result in a highly functional and adaptable solution in the least 'complex' and 'simplest' code.
It is worth the effort to overcome the perceived 'complexity' and benefit from the resultant powerful 'simplicity'.
There is more to it.
The purpose is to give 'power users' the ability to import data into 'holding classes' and then be able to process the data as required.
We have developed functionality for users to import regular imports, but sometimes the user just wants to analyse random data, which does not warrant defining the data structure. Also these users can not be granted access to SQL for security reasons. So we need to control what they are able to do.
Not being close enough to the action, I suspect there might be alternative ways of enabling this, of which I am unaware of.
Yes the Wizard as found under the SQL in Management Portal is very powerful - It is possible to replicate the csp page, but the methods that are used to do the processing and provide the options are not known. Is it possible to expose that detail ?
Looking forward to the SQL loader - is there any indication of release date? We would look forward to testing BETA version in IRIS
