Funny thing happened…

I have to share that:). I had a ticket to develop one operational report. Not only the report requirements were complex, but also it was very difficult to debug. We just started to collect the data required for this report, and we do not have enough of it to cover all potential issues. Moreover, since the data volumes are so small, the issues are resolved fast, so in two days, I never had a chance to catch a single case of exception. Until this morning. When a thought suddenly came to my mind, and I asked myself: Hettie, why in the world you are waiting for an exception to happen in real-time?! All your tables are bitemporal, so you can time-travel to any moment of the past, including the time, when exceptions occurred!

It’s funny and not funny that it took me two days to figure this out! Especially because I was the one who introduced bitemporality!

Worked as expected 🙂
