Forum OpenACS Development: Response to Porting ACS 4 PL/Sql packages

Posted by Don Baccus on
How extensively does the ACS 4.0 PL/SQL code make use of default values?

I'm tempted to just get rid of them, and give the Oracle source back
to aD afterwards :)

Your hack feels like a heck of a lot more work for us compared to the
relatively minor inconvenience of foregoing the use of default values.

Besides which, default values make the code a bit more opaque for
someone who's not intimately familiar with the toolkit...though I have
to admit I use them all the time, myself (in languages that support
them, not PL/pgSQL obviously).
