OTN Appreciation Day : Function Result Cache

Feature: Function Result Cache.

Why : because this feature is Simple.
It is_almost_ no hassle to activate, and it had a Good Effect where we needed it.
Simple.

Why not: If you need this feature badly, you probably got something wrong in the design of the application. But hey: our app was an off-the-shelf COTS package, and the users took advantage of the software in ways that had never been envisaged 10 years ago...

Why not : because it didnt work in our case, despite all the RTFM we did. But one of my colleagues was persistent... and we found a workaround. Now it works like a charm.

Thx Peter Swier for persisting.

Thx Tim Hall for re-vitalizing my blog-postings.

More on FRC: Later.
