SMALL SAMPLE PROGRAMS:

These programs are used as our regression testing suite as well as illustrating a few minor functions each time. As well as this list, we have grouped the samples by feature.


ooftst01, ooftst01.h Results
Shows how to declare a single table database, create it and perform operations to add data, do simple searches and combine selections. Also makes use of separate files, rather than a single database container.

 

ooftst02, ooftst02.h Results
Introduction to relationships, shows how to declare a relationship between two classes and add related data. Uses an explicit Join field.

 

ooftst03Results
Tests the multi-user mode. Note that on a Mac, the test database needs to be on a shared volume to enable multi-user locking.

 

ooftst04 Results
Shows two forms of report output. Keep the ooftest4.sav to compare against the ooftest4.out you will produce.

 

ooftst05 Results
Lets you test the dbDate field type input, looping around entering sample dates and showing the resulting date parsed from your entry.

 

ooftst06 Results
Shows how to modify related values, testing both direct calls and view-related calls (which would be used by an embedded table editing groups of related records).

 

ooftst07, ooftst07.h Results
Shows comparative and range searches on variety of keys, eg between two numbers, dates, and char fields. The range searches are our between() and outside() operators.

 

ooftst08
Simple test of the inbuilt error-reporting dialog.

 

ooftst09 Results
Shows deletion of a single record, including cascading deletion of related child records.

 

ooftst10 Results
Shows use of stream input to create records, eg: importing data from a text file.

 

ooftst11 Results
Shows using the data generator to generate random data to populate a database (taken from a real project).

 

ooftst12 Results
Shows declaring compound fields mixing char and binary data, and searching and sorting by their indices.

 

ooftst13Results
A non-indexed version of ooftst01 which shows the same searches, with an additional search in a selection.

 

ooftst14 Results:
Columnar plain htm
PageWise plain htm
Columnar NetScape tables
PageWise NetScape tables


The same report as ooftst04 but using our htm report-writer to produce 4 variations.

 

ooftst15 Results
Demonstrates opening two databases sequentially - closing the first before opening the second.

 

ooftst16, ooftst16.h Results
Very similar to ooftst02 and ooftst06 in demonstrating relationships, but uses a direct pointer relationship managed entirely by OOFILE. Includes searching by a related field.

 

ooftst17, ooftst07.h Results
Non-indexed searches and sorts on basic data types same as ooftst07, but building the database without indexing.

 

ooftst18 Results
Wildcard searching, using the same database as ooftst01, with the * and ? wildcards.

 

ooftst19 Results
Mixin inheritance used to provide virtual functions from an abstract base class.

 

ooftst20 Results
One way to create an ad-hoc query, eg: if you were giving the user a GUI query interface.

 

ooftst21 Results
Multi-level sorting and special Any Of and All Of searches for single-pass searching with a number of character strings.

 

ooftst22 Results
Tests various common errors that should be picked up with runtime errors. (Note: the results do NOT show the alerts that occur at each error.)

 

ooftst23 Results
Rebuild a database, to regenerate the indices, showing how you can add records with indexing disabled (much quicker) and then rebuild.

 

ooftst24 Results
Open two c-tree databases simultaneously and show data storage and retrieval on both.

 

ooftst25 Results
Create a RAM-based table from a c-tree table, containing the current selection of data.

 

ooftst26 Results
Counting related data and intersecting related data as is often used in producing reports or graphs.

 

ooftst27 Results
Word parser used in generating keyword indices is tested with a few word lists to show how the 'stop word' lists and minimum word length work to filter words from the index.

 

ooftst28 Results
Keyword indexing and searches, with rebuilding of the indexes.

 

ooftst29 Results
Calculated field Total Price used to show how a calculated field is defined and can be used for searches and sorting.

 

ooftst30 Results
Standalone field types used with a variety of constructors and simple operations.

 

ooftst31 Results
BLOBs stored in the database and updated, with various operations changing their size and partial contents.

 

ooftst32 Results
Boolean fields stored, indexed and used in searches.

 

ooftst33 Results
Date format masks for output control plus Boolean and Char calculated fields.

 

ooftst34 Results
Persistent RAM database backend ability to save and revert the whole database.

 

ooftst35 Results
Tests the database backend relative access patterns similarly to a GUI listbox being scrolled by a user.

 

ooftst36 Results
Duplicate record handling by automatic skipping, duplicate value tests and exceptions.

 

ooftst37 Results
Copying from one database to another, eg: as if updating a schema.

 

ooftst38 Results
Shows searches using indices that ignore nulls. Shows how to effectively have multiple indices onto a single field using a trick with a compound field.

 

ooftst39 Results
Tests deletion of the whole database. Then tests if data stays deleted after addition of similar, but new, data.

 

ooftst40 Results
Uses the inbuilt test data generator to generate a large database. Then demonstrates the use of recordNumber(query) on various selections, comparing indexed vs non-indexed fields.

 

ooftst41 Results
Shows the effect of opening a database when the table has a different schema declared to that of the saved database. The results show which fields are altered and tests include having fields of different sizes and having extra or less fields than the database saved on file.

ooftst43 Results
Converts a number of embedded line endings to the current platform's style.
