Automations

A large part of Andromeda's power comes from its automations. Using automations you can embed formulas directly into table definitions, generate history tables easily, have materialized views, and do many other things as well. Programmers who master Andromeda's automations rarely if ever need to program business logic in their application code, they instead focus on getting the business rules correct once in the database and then they are free to work on a nice UI.

Most automations generate values that the end-user is not allowed to override, this we call the automation constraint. Yet other automations allow either the user or the computer to set a value. Whether or not an automated value can be overwritten depends on what the automation is doing and whether it makes sense to allow user overrides.

The automations fall into different families, and each is presented on its own page.
