Well known names are part my rapid application development (xRAD) frame work. In this blog post I introduce a well known name that has helped me, since 1992, to rapidly develop applications for my clients.
In 1992 I decided PostalCode would be the well known name I would use for: postal code, post code,and zip code.
Zip code, post code, and postal code are different names for the same thing - a code that is appended to the end of addresses to make it possible to quickly sort mail.
PostalCode is consistently used in my databases, models, code, generators, snippets, control names – anywhere one of my applications uses a zip code, post code, or postal code.
Stay tuned for my next XRAD blog post in which I will explain how a well known name like PostalCode contributes to rapid application development.
