Hi,

Every once and again a question comes up regarding the design of either an application or a (part of a) database.
Normally I move those to the General forum. Is there a better place for these?

I agree; perhaps we could have a "Database Design" forum too.

I normally move them to Designer Forum - Oracle Designer and General Database Design Issues (including ER-Modeling, UML, etc).

Hm, ok.
I never saw the Designer forum in that perspective (must admit, I never read the subtitle). This is probably because of the way Designer is used a lot in The Netherlands: to generate (Forms) applications.
From what I heard, this isn't common use in other regions..

I think a separate forum could be overkill, considering the small number of posts.

I also had not considered the 'Designer' forum for this purpose, but it IS in the sub-title and as long as we all use the same place for the same purpose then I suppose that's okay.

I agree with 'Frank' there are very few places that use Oracle Designer for creating applications, unfortunately. I did it one time for a small application, 16 days (of 4 people - end to end), one VERY large multi-tab Form which was later split into 4 'directed' Forms. To my chagrin I had to write one line of code in the initial version. I then learned what I had done wrong in my Designer definition and was able to remove my one manual line of code. The application was a roaring success and is still in use 10 years later, and is still maintained through Designer which has been upgraded as they upgraded the rest of their applications manually.

PS I see that a Design question was raised in the General area.
