Database Endemes

Even though endemes are best used at level 3, looking through my database, I have noticed that there are things which can be handled by endemes. Here are some simple uses of endemes in a database. Databases commonly contain columns like:

  • status/enabled/disabled/active/inactive etc. etc.
  • flags/bits/indicators
  • type/category/class
  • priorities/importance/severity
  • modes
  • actions
  • access/permissions
  • options

With more complex frameworks, endemes can be used to store:

  • user fields etc.
  • simple field values
  • data mining results
