ABIS Infor - 2011-08

Our second newsletter (2011-08) contains the following topics:

Ever heard of the french expression "L'embarras du choix"? That's actually the first thing that came to mind when I started to dig into the multitude of Java frameworks that are available these days.

MySQL went through several important evolutions since its birth in 1995. It was mainly the switch from version 4.1 to 5.0, introducing constructs like views, triggers, and stored procedures, which marked the transition of an underdog RDBMS to a full-grown database server able to compete with its "big brothers". A brief historic overview of MySQL and a summary of what was added in MySQL 5.0 will help understanding the big potential of this great RDBMS! Read the article.

In most companies data are held in various formats, not just SAS. The relational databases (DB2, Oracle, SQL Server,...) that we use, have their own peculiarities that may not always be obvious.

"Proc SQL" was developed by SAS to make use of some of the powerful components of SQL. The "Proc SQL" procedure available in SAS can minimise coding and maximise resource usage, particularly when working with very large data collections. Using "libname" for a database and working through "Proc SQL" doesn't mean your code is going to be handled as if running against a SAS data source. There are the usual design differences between SAS data sets and RDBMS tables, coding considerations, and the "libname" option versus "SQL Pass-Through". Read the article.

TOGAF is an industry standard enterprise architecture framework to develop an enterprise information systems architecture for use within an organisation.

For the second time we also organise an Open System track for KBC: 39-days of intensive training in various technologies such as UNIX, scripting, XML, UML, Oracle and Java.
