Forum OpenACS Development: Response to Java in 4.0

5: Response to Java in 4.0 (response to 1)
Posted by good bye on
The idea behind this is that adding Java processing directly to the DB is not the best solution, given that the DB is already the performance bottleneck. We should discuss this, though, to make sure that we think of all the issues involved in adding Java to the equation.

Adding java to the DB would only cause more of a performance bottleneck if the jvm running inside postgres was indeed slower than an external jvm. Is this necessarily going to be the case? It would seem that a JVM inside of postgres would be a much cleaner design than a tcl interpreter spawning a java process in a thread.
