Forum OpenACS Q&A: Response to trying to understand the acs_attributes table... what are sort_order, static_
In the problem set 4 datamodel, sort_order was for ordering in table creation when writing a code generation script. I am not sure why it has a unique constraint in acs_attributes.
Also, what is the intended purpose of the static_p field?
"comment on column acs_attributes.static_p is ' Determines whether this attribute is static. If so, only one copy of the attribute''s value exists for all objects of the same type. This value is stored in acs_static_attr_values table if storage_type is "generic". Otherwise, each object of this type can have its own distinct value for the attribute."
Am i correct in assuming that i can have a repeated pretty_name as long as it belongs to an object other than the one i am creating for my package
