Basic Database Architecture – Don Macrae

This was the first phase of an exercise to compare various approaches to architecting an application involving pc desktop guis connecting to a relational database. An open invitation was issued to code a sample application according to a chosen architecture. The sample app was a simple ‘To do’ list. Requirements and an introduction to the exercise are here.

In this meeting two offerings were presented:

Don Macrae presented a object-oriented, layered architecture – Zipped code is here.
Jim Duff presented a RAD offering – using data aware controls. His zipped up code is here.
