Subject Re: [Firebird-Architect] Schemas

Just on another note, Oracle has alias definition to allow you to define
another name (short name) for objects.
For example, you could use the alias of "foo" instead of
"myschema"."mytable" thus making your queries easier to write and support
while getting the benefits of using schema. Also, you can re-alias
something, effectively changing the pointer so that you can develope
somthing, and bring it into production by just changing the pointer.

So, you can get the benefits of schema's without hassels, for those of you
who do not like the extra typing.
