Hi Lynn,

Database professionals and software developers often still don't understand each other...

In HF-SQL, do you give a hint of the issues there are between applications and data?

I like the term no-mans land... Martin Fowler uses it for the authors in his foreword to Refactoring Databases, they both worked in the field between applications and data: no-mans land

Kind regards,

Gian

Really good expression for it. HF SQL stays strictly on the data side of the line, and doesn't look out into the battlefield.
