In this episode, we talk about the data separation model, a semi-popular technique, used by a number of FileMaker developers, where the interface is in a separate file from the data, allowing the interface file to be replaced at any time without having to import data into a new version. To say that neither of us are fans of the model would be an understatement, but we discuss what it is, why people use it, our thoughts on it and generally give it a fair shake. We also discuss the new data migration tool which automates the import of data from an old version to a new and how this has changed one of the key reasons for using the data separation model. At the end of it, you’ll come to your own conclusions but we hope you’ll find the subject matter interesting and the content thought-provoking.
