Series of FAQs on understanding undocumented database applications

Series of FAQs on understanding undocumented database applications

Series of FAQs on understanding undocumented database applications

I have recently posted a series of FAQs on this forum on debugging and trying to understand undocumented database applications and get them to a level where they can be supported. They are based on many things I have done at work over recent years.
They are written without reference to specific products or technologies, so don't contain programming tool specific techniques. Ie they are equally applicable to VB/VBA/.NET on SQL Server as to Java on Oracle as to a LAMP stack web application.


RE: Series of FAQs on understanding undocumented database applications

Hello John,

I see, there was only one FAQ beforehand, so you activated the FAQ section. Take a star alone for that.

For the lazy folk, instead of clicking FAQs above here's a list of the new FAQs:

FAQ669-7709: 0. Introduction
FAQ669-7710: 1. Get an overview of the application from an end user's perspective
FAQ669-7711: 2. Understand the application from a non tech admin perspective
FAQ669-7712: 3. Find out how the front end works
FAQ669-7713: 4. Back end database(s)
FAQ669-7714: 5. Bringing it all together

Bye, Olaf.
