Patterns and underlying principles just don't cut it. Computers tend to deal in binary - they tend to expect something precise rather than a general ideology or a well-meaning concept.

That is not what I am saying at all, you misunderstood. To start learning an application it would be nice for it to actually start up after selecting defaults from the installer. I assume you weren't fed Oracle documentation as a foetus?

Well, that's how the world is I'm afraid. It's full of complexity. I am not throwing more technologies into the mix, far from it - I am trying to support the most commonly used applications. I would love the whole world to use one database (so long as it's not Oracle :-)

Did you fully tune your first Oracle database before touching it? Do you realise how crazy that sounds? Received on Fri Jul 15 2011 - 03:09:41 CDT
