Headstart-utilities will use these things when generating forms etc.
, however it is very time-consuming. For forms etc. which normally will not handle big amount of records, it is not a problem, but when there are batch-processes modifying that table, it becomes very slow.
There are some methods to fasten it a bit, but it stays slow.
We made a decision to use table-API's, but for some large tables, where users are not allowed to modify ( they are filled in batch-procedures) we removed them for performance-issues.
