Thinking of upgrading Documaker Studio from 11.3 to 12.2 SE.
Currently use the old master.* and lbylog.* filesystem for development and QA in DM 11.3.
I would like to keep using the flat file MRL system, but I believe I read that DM Studio 12.1+ now requires a db.
Just wanted to see if there were any alternatives and if adding a db could be isolated to just forms development purposes and not for the eventual single-step transaction processing in QA through IDS 2.5/DM 12.2.
My question is: If I develop forms in 12.2 using an SQL (or other) db, would I still be able to extract flat files (master.*) from the DEV MRL, drop them into the deflib in the QA MRL and have transactions processed through the QA IDS 2.5/DM 12.2 instance to produce output without the need for a db similar to DEV?
We have upgraded to 12.1p2, but 12.2 should do the same in that when you upgrade you can still use the CB5 library. It is only when you try to create a new library that you do not have the option to create a CB5 library. Hope this helps.
