Evaluatie van het softwarepakket DATABOSS.
Report 93.3.LT.4133, Transport Engineering and Logistics.
The database-package studied appears to be a good option, for certain specific
situations, to link a Pascal-program to a database. These situations can be
described by the following aspects:
The DATABOSS package offers for such links a special import-/export function.
- end-user is not the most important user of the application
- good communication between designer and end-user possible
- quick application of relative simple database is desired
- the data exchanged (desired field selection) is not, per definition, of
the same quantity and arranged in the same way
The design principle that has to be used is easy to learn. But the level that
can be reached with the quick start, the user can make in learning how to use
DATABOSS suffices only to implement relatively simple datamodels. Because of
the structure of the manual it is difficult for the user to develop himself
more advanced datamodels.
A big advantage of the package is that to implement a datamodel, the user has
has to specify the different datafields only. DATABOSS will then automatically
generate the database in the desired language (Pascal,C,C++). This
also makes it possible to change, relatively easy, from one programming language
