Hi all, I'm about to go wild on my new application under Rails. I've got a hosting company and want to build a complete administration app. Are there any pitfals to avoid, when for instance in the future I want a seperate account (or group) for managing contact details etc, and a seperate acount (or group) for managing prices. I do not have clear yet what I want seperated (or hidden) based on accounts in the future. Should I just start and see where it leads me (good practice btw), or are there thing to already consider. Thanx! Gerard -- "Who cares if it doesn't do anything? It was made with our new Triple-Iso-Bifurcated-Krypton-Gate-MOS process ..." My $Grtz =~ Gerard; ~ :wq!

Gerard, Well you can't do everything with 'boeren verstand', sometimes you just need to sit down and write a couple of scenarios you think you will be facing, what you are really expect in the feature (so not thing that could you expecting). Its usually a bad way of building software, by making all kind of options that could be used in the feature or things that you could need. Just design the application based on the present requirements (and try to be flexible with your database design). And then make the application. When changes occur (and most of the time the changes you expect don't occur) just adjust the application. It just depends on your needs, sometimes you are dealing with companies that have much (money) to loose if changes can't be done fast or rely on the database by using it from other applications. But based on what I see you offer on your website, you should just start making and adjust when things need to be changed. Veel s6, Abdur-Rahman

Abdur, I must say I totally agree. The scope should be the demands I have now. Thanx for the push. Regards, Gerard. P.S. I wonder how many people on this list understand the term 'boeren verstand' .. :-) On Sunday 25 December 2005 15:48, Abdur-Rahman A. tried to type something like: > to be flexible with your database design).
