Excerpt of article text...
I admit it. I'm addicted to Real Studio and Real Studio conferences because they are a lot of fun. You meet interesting people and you get to see what others are doing with Real Studio. The Real Studio Database Days held in Frankfurt, Germany on November 3-4 were no exception.
The first day of training had nine people in attendance: six Germans, two Americans, and one Belgian. Christian Schmitz started the day with a review of the databases that can be used with Real Studio. The list is surprisingly big when you include the MonkeyBread SQL plugins.
Christian reviewed the Real Studio database classes: Database, Recordset, DatabaseRecord, DatabaseField, and the PreparedSQLStatement. He then went through the steps to select, insert, and update data. The group had a lengthy discussion about dealing with errors. Database errors happen all the time and unfortunately many people don't trap for them. It's especially common for people coming from Visual Basic 6 to not bother checking for errors because that environment throws database exceptions where Real Studio does not.
