Been working on this for three months and every month I get a little sadder
Luckily this project is in it's final stage and we'll soon start a pilot with some customers.
The next project will not feature any standards except my own
I'm translating from German to Dutch, but it makes no sense...
Google Translate asks me if I meant Luxembourgish
Makes slightly more sense from Luxembourgish though
Playing database in a file, huh?
It's not even a file I'm creating or sending, just a very long string.
I put it in the database, a client asks for it using a SOAP service, I send the string and the client application puts it in a file.
But everyone around this standard keeps talking about files and I kind of stuck with it
I wouldn't be surprised if others actually used files to store this data in a back-end though.
I think even the documentation says I should use files.
Stupid documentation can't tell me how to store my data...
The only file I get is a CSV from a source application, but only because there really is no other way
You should try then with "lerne bayerisch"... It sometimes hurts in the eyes, seeing how it is written
If something has a solution... Why do we have to worry about?. If it has no solution... For what reason do we have to worry about?
Help me to understand what I'm saying, and I'll explain it better to you
Rating helpful answers is nice, but saying thanks can be even nicer.
Standards are attempted by team managers who get tired of fixing the same exact type of bug over and over. So they come into the world through the best of intentions.
The problem with standards is that they can limit creativity, which itself is a critical part of programming.
So, how do you have both? That is the big question we are all still trying to find the answer to. There are lots of ideas and attempts, which means there is a lot to research and a lot more that can be tried.
Sort of reminds me on the MBus standard. There's 2 bytes there that encode 3 ASCII letters to pose as a vendor code. With 3 letters, it's possible to use some abbreviation as the magic ID which, while it doesn't solve all problems, helps a lot over plain numbers.
