Self descriptive.


RSS feeds are becoming the standard notification mechanism in modern applications. Even writing an RSS feed in a  procedure isn't very difficult, letting a pattern to do it for us can be a big gain in productivity in this area.

The basic idea is, given a transaction, generate a procedure that return an RSS file with the last xx (default 10) records. This file can be consumed by any RSS reader.

Canonical Example

Another examples can be:

  • The last orders of purchase emitted
  • The twenty greater clients
  • Last clients entered
  • Currency Quotation
