A Pattern for Softcoded Values
May 2002 (vol. 35 no. 5)
pp. 28-34
Michael Blaha, OMT Associates
Cheryl Smith, Information Resources

Builders of database applications focus on using data structure models to facilitate storing and retrieving data. Using abstractions can enhance their understanding of these structures as well as their ability to subsequently manipulate data in the actual database application.One such pattern the authors have repeatedly found useful nominally expresses softcoded values as a data model, but also involves object-oriented concepts and application-specific constraints and behavior. An equipment example describes an application of this pattern in industry.
