Using Cincom ObjectStudio with New Projects that Need to Access Legacy Data
New development projects often need to access legacy relational databases that can’t be changed to match the restrictions of some other development environments. This is a situation where the freedom and flexibility of Smalltalk can really shine. Glorp is specifically designed to keep you moving fast where a legacy data requirement would be knocking others off the rails.
In this presentation, Mark Grinnell, manager of the Cincom® ObjectStudio® engineering team, and Andreas Hiltner, the lead VM engineer for ObjectStudio, describe a medical domain that needs a new web application that must connect to multiple legacy databases. By doing so, they will demonstrate how the graphical modeling and mapping tools in ObjectStudio help business users understand the existing data and map it intelligently to match the needs of vital new applications.
