    The lack of network authentication to the backend is a significant hole in the current database product, especially at scale. Other major databases generally allow for database authentication via Active Directory or LDAP (e.g. Oracle, MS SQL, etc.). Advantages...

    AI archiver stores or archives closed AI files. Adding a function to allow the archiver to remove out dated or aged files will be useful. Without this function something must be put in place to further move or remove files or run out of storage.

    If you copy the DB to different path and you have no valid .st file there is no way to repair the db. The list command should always work and just export the .st files with the current paths (or maybe just with dots). The user can then correct them manually...
  • Default area assignments for objects

    As we know, an object added to a DB without an area assignment will go into the schema area. As we also know, no application objects should go there. So the price of keeping the Schema Area clean is eternal vigilance. There is no way to prevent future...
