Our continuing series on RDi 9.6 focuses on some of the new and exciting changes to the editor itself.
By Joe Pluta
OK, "exciting" may be stretching it just a little, but "helpful" and "appreciated" definitely come to mind when looking at some of the new features in the editor. Many of the things I've written about in my previous articles in the series are rather flashy; these other new features provide more meat-and-potatoes functionality that may actually be more productive than some of the glitzier enhancements we've already seen. Let's take a look at some of them.
Let's continue our debug session where we left off and learn a few more debug tips and tricks!

In the previous article, I explained that the most widely accepted definition (if we can call it that) of Big Data is more data than you can manage (store, analyze, and so on) with some (usually high) intrinsic potential value. I also mentioned that these datasets are usually composed of one or more types of data-structured (think RDMS), unstructured (typically text data stored in log files), and a mix of the previous two (like JSON, for instance).
