Forum OpenACS Development: Re: Is it time for NaviServ Again?

Posted by Steve Manning on
I can't see how you could realistically switch to Apache without a lot of grief. OACS relies on the TCL and database functionality that AOLserver provides. NaviServ might be the answer though. No offence intended to the AOL bods but it would probably be easier to sell to some people if the AOL name wasn't there - it does seem to have a certain stigma.

Every consultant/programmer company I am aware of that does OpenACS or .LRN work, does not even mention AOLserver when talking to customers.

They just say, "application server that works well behind an Apache proxy, just like Java servlets do" with the option of running the application server without Apache.

Dumping the AOL name would be a good idea however.
