Forum OpenACS Improvement Proposals (TIPs): Re: Add caching db_* API (based on Greenpeace/Berkeley work) to 5.2

Hi Don,

I would like to ask if its possible to cache a query on the duration of a single request.

For example rather than passing around a big data structure around procs, etc.  You just rerun the query since its already been cached.  So the cached data structure now becomes your way of accessing your needed data, rather passing around across your procs using custom code.  Although I would like it to be in just for the duration of a single request.  So its going to be like db_transaction of some sorts, well only on selects that is.

Thanks looking forward to use this new facility in oacs.
