The task at hand
As an example of distributed infobase operations, let us create several departments for Jack of All Trades.
Unlike branches that are located in different cities and act as independent entities with relative independence in how they manage their books, the departments are located in the same city, have no independent legal status, and keep their books in strict compliances with practices of the headquarters.
Therefore, they all use exactly the same configuration as the one used in the headquarters, and if the headquarters make any changes to the configuration, all of those changes should be rapidly disseminated to the configurations of the departments.
To implement this scenario, a distributed infobase is a perfect fit. First let us set up data exchange with departments using exclusively interactive means.
