Forum OpenACS Q&A: Response to nsjava staus
And as long as we're talking about interoperability and code reuse:
It would be very nice to refactor the real AOLserver connection pooling database and driver code into a library that could be embeded nicely into tclsh as well as AOLserver. Or into other C code for that matter, R or Scsh, for instance. That's something I've thought about, but so far never looked into to try to decide if it's feasible (and I'm not familiar with the AOLserver database driver internals anyway).
For that matter, Aapache 2.0 still doesn't have database connection pooling. Maybe a dual-mode AOLserver + Apache hacker like Todd could give it to them, I dunno.
