Forum OpenACS Q&A: Re: anybody using [ns_thread begindetached]?

Posted by Andrew Piskorski on
Yup, that sounds normal. I don't remember what magic the OpenACS APM file watching stuff uses exactly, but it never did work for new non-connection threads you explicitly spawn. It may not even work for the AOLserver scheduler thread, I don't remember.

Clearly the master thread that gets created at AOLserver startup is not modified by the APM stuff, and whatever hooks the APM has inserted to re-source the modified file into each new connection thread as it starts up are not taking effect for new non-connection threads.

That's how I remember it happening back when I last looked into it anyway, way back in ACS 4.2 days I think...
