Discussion on Andrews Article "What is Best Practice ?"
Author: email@example.com (ulrich-merkel)
"Best Practices" are context driven handling options:
there are best practices(!) to handle very large strings in uniface etc.
They are a collection of "getting things done" which stand the proof of real world implementations.
"Best Practices" is NOT a "you have to do", but
plus reference information (ref guide pdfs)
plus testable information
You should NEVER follow best practices blind,
but they are THE resource to give you
more insight what really affects your implementation.
