Details about Namespaces

A namespace is a collection of data and programs in a virtual work space. In a namespace, you can define the globals that various groups or people need. For example, if your accounting department needs to use certain globals that exist on different systems or in different directories, you can set up a single namespace that references all the accounting globals and databases on your network.
Caché comes with the following predefined namespaces:

  • %SYS — System management information and utilities
  • DOCBOOK — Documentation.
  • SAMPLES — Sample code and applications.
  • USER — Empty at installation. Typically used for application development.
