RBuilder master detail: choosing between TkbmMemTable (or another memory base component) and writin

edited August 2008 in Datapipelines

I'm currently doing investigations on how to port an old DOS-Btrieve
based application under Windows via Delphi (7).
Most of the job of the proof of concept is done, but I'm still
collecting informations on how to print.
RBuilder seems quite good, but as the underlying datas are un
normalized, I'll have to use either a JITPipeLine component or use
intermediate Memory tables.

But I don't have any idea of what's the best/easiest solution to choose.

Does any one have hints, suggestions, and even better some examples of
code using RBuilder Master-Detail Reports over mem tables (tkbmMemTables) or
via JITPipeLine component.

    Hi Guy,

    The nice thing about JITPipelines is that if gives you complete control over
    how you access your data from virtually any resource. Take a look at demo
    139 located in the \RBuilder\Demos\1. Reports\... directory for an example
    of creating a master-detail report using JITPipelines.

    We do not have much experience using kbmMemTables however many of our
    customers use the product successfully with RB. Perhaps one of them will
    chime in with their advise.
