The initial API for Google+ was released on 15th September, 2011. But, this API currently supports only public data, and user data (which can be accessed from any web application or web site). However, there no support for building Google+ applications. It follows a RESTful API design and provides OAuth2.0 for authentication.
SQL being a simplified and very powerful query language, has various pitfalls, when it comes to report generation capabilities of the system. However, we have OLAP-based systems and data warehouses, which provide a better way to analyze data and uses a multi-dimensional data model for complex and ad-hoc queries with a rapid execution time. OLAP systems require dimensions, and fact tables, ie, building a data warehouse, which is feasible for a medium or large sized organization but not for small applications. OLAP provides various operations like :
Slicing and Dicing (selection conditions and attributes)
Roll up and Drill down (to navigate along various levels of detail)
Pivot (rotate the representation)
What if we could impart the same capabilities to all the applications ? I think we can. But how ?
Many friends of mine have questions and doubts regarding the “Specialized Syntax based Query Building” system. They would, however, prefer the “Form-based Query Building”. Why do we need such a system, when the conventional system is working fine ? Why does the user have to type a “Specialized Syntax”, can’t he just use SQL ? and many more questions arise. Lets consider the following scenario :
Originally, I used to call it “Natural Language to SQL Translator”, but I guess what I intend to do at this point of time is not Natural Language, it is rather a specialized syntax, which I guess can be further extended to natural language. Let me make a thing clear, about the system :
I think I am contributing to the world, but I am not. I think I love my work, but I do not. I think I am cool, people do not, perhaps they are just a being sarcastic. I am a normal guy who loves to tell people about their typical humorous nature, which they sometimes ignore. But, its all a part and parcel of life, so here I present to you the unveiling of my new blog after my not-so-profound previous blogs (Weird Guy Weird Thoughts and not-everyone-knows-i-had-another-blog), the tidbits from a ludicrous mind.
