Forum OpenACS Q&A: Re: Would Openacs benefit if it had an object oriented scripting language?
Malte, can you tell us more about how Vienna is using XOTcl, what they found it particularly good or bad for in the OpenACS context, etc.?
Well, that's maybe off topic from what we were discussing here, but close enough and interesting enough that I wanted the excuse to post the link. :)
Roberto, speaking theoretically, if you could wave your magic wand and transform OpenACS from procedural style Tcl code to something OO, but otherwise very similar (XOTcl, perhaps), would the result be better or worse? Why or why not? I don't really know the answer to that myself, as I haven't done any real OOP work.
