WAP /// SIG PUBLIC DOMAIN LIBRARY PDS NAME : OMNIS 3 TECH NOTES DISK ID : 3INF-15 BOOTABLE ? Side One Only Notes as originally complied by: D A DataSystems 3792 Windover Dr. Hamburg, NY 14075 716-648-2462 (DA Datasystems no longer exists - all its programs were placed into the PD) Introducing OMNIS 3 for the Apple /// OMNIS 3 has been available for the Apple /// for almost 4 years (we saw an advertisement in an old 1981 British Apple magazine); and it has gained a reputation over those years as being one of the most powerful Database Managers available for the machine. Unfortunately it also gained a reputation for carrying with it a somewhat "inaccessible" User Manual. Mostly this was a result of two things. The system was originally developed in Britain and the examples in the manual (and marketing literature) occasionally slip into Pounds and British Postal codes and similar idioms which often add an extra level of potential mis-understanding to the otherwise quite complete examples. Additionally the system was originally developed under the UCSD Pascal System which allowed eventual "ports" of the program to the wide variety of machines appearing on the scene in those halcyon days of the early 80's. (Nowadays you just do an IBM and maybe a Mac version ...sigh). This led to a manual that was scattered with notes to the effect that 'Apple ][ users should ignore the next paragraph', 'Apple /// users should skip this section...' and similar interruptions of the reading. Additionally I also felt, personally, that the TUTORIAL approach taken by the documentation was inadequate - I don't like tutorials and rarely have the patience to take the time to walk through them; the resulting "dartboard" attempts to use the program can be frustrating. Well the program developers, Blythe Software (now with California Offices) recognized this but took a quite realistic look at the Apple /// market of 1985 and hesitated. They have recently released a MacIntosh version of OMNIS 3 which is drawing RAVE reviews across the board. Their early (premature ?) release of an OMNIS 2 for the Mac in the first mac-month with the original documentation was roundly panned. So for the new Mac version they did a re-write of the entire manual; the result is, we are told, quite well done. They did not feel the potential Apple /// sales volume justified a similar re-write and neither do we. But we did still consider OMNIS the most powerful DBMS for the /// - if a bit pricey for an "orphan" market. Hence the "Revival" on our part of the program in November 1985 and the 50% list price reduction (tied, naturally, to some "cross-your-fingers" type volume commitments). We have tentatively agreed to take over technical and customer support for the /// version from Blythe and will be contacting the current users with various support options. In addition we have set about to creating a set of ADDENDA to the User Manual in the form of the enclosed "TECH NOTES". We will be adding to these and definitely request and expect your feedback to this series - such a multi-faceted product can only be adequately supported if it stands upon a wide-ranging usage base. We cannot alone run OMNIS through all its paces and thus need YOUR feedback and comments on YOUR applications to guide us in supporting you and the entire user base. RECOMMENDATION Well I hate to say it but the TECH NOTES series is not a substitute for a re-write of the manual. You've just GOT to read the ENTIRE manual first; and we cannot see a better, more complete introduction to the program than the TUTORIAL... Having done it ourselves the hard way we suggest that the extra time spent plodding through the tutorial/manual now will save hours of thumbing through it later - this really is a tremendously flexible and powerful program which you probably will build a large percentage of your Apple /// usage around. Acknowledging the flaws and occasional omissions of the manual up front we still cannot see how you can fill in the holes without knowing the road. So we recommend the following "startup" process. 1. Install the system in your floppy or hard-disk based system using the guidelines in the manual. Read the /// notes in the manual. Read our NOTES #1, 9 and 10 if applicable. 2. Scan through the entire manual to get a feel primarily for its style and general terminology. You will probably find that the regular linking of descriptions to specifics of the ongoing tutorial/example makes this stage difficult. 3. Now scan through our TECH NOTES so you will have a sense of when a particular note should be pulled up in the following steps. 4. Read through the entirety of the User manual WHILE setting up the sample application described in the manual. Take a few 1-2 hour daily sessions to do this. 5. Now delete those sample files and go ahead and create your own TEST database application. We suggest a simple, single-file Address Book with indexes on Last Name and Zip and simple reports including one label-style and one 'boilerplate' letter type. If you maintain name & address data you may wish to move that data into this application via a DIF file format if available. 6. Read through the TECH NOTES again. 7. Finally sit down and DESIGN your first production application ON PAPER. Draw up lists of fields and field attributes and sketch our some Entry Formats for data entry & retrieval. We strongly recommend a simple "flat file" for now. Unless necessary for the initial application try to avoid multiple connected files; usually you can work with 2 or 3 single applications first then later connect them appropriately. Keep in mind that OMNIS is quite flexible in allowing re-configuring of most anything down the line (you just need some patience for those long - overnight - file reorgs !). 8. You WILL get stalled at times; you will find some elements to be pretty obscure as you read & work with them. Give yourself some time climbing this learning curve but then do call us if you feel stymied or need some assistance. Having myself gone through the process of learning to use the beast I know it is regularly frustrating but not too far down the line it starts to get exciting as you begin to realize the breadth and depth of powerful features at your command in the OMNIS program.
