Those looking for another way to secretly be a SQL-MR expert without having the User Guide and Foundation Guide PDFs open on your desktop - look no further than the Variable Creation node on TWM. You can instantly get code examples of all up-to-date SQL-MR commands.
3. Project Explorer
TWM allows you to open projects by default -and each analysis you conduct becomes a folder in your project. Over time, especially with the prolific use of the "Free Form SQL" node and some smart SQL scripting - you can come up with rather complex workflows - which are all tagged, curated, and arranged any way you want. It's not the GUI-based workflow that everyone is clamoring for, but it's definitely a step-up from managing all your SQL scripting on a notepad. Best of all - each node can be executed in parallel - without bothering an existing query. Each node opens a separate connection to the DB when running.
If you want to create a slightly different version of a query - simply "clone" a node, rename it, and edit the contents! Nice and neat.
4. Metadata Repository
Best of all - all the above activity in TWM is stored as metadata in the AsterDB itself! This allows easy retrieval of your project regardless of the workstation you use - and also allows sharing of work amongst multiple users - if everyone points to the same metadata repository in their TWM instance. This can be a great way to collaborate on your Aster usage across teams.
