Forum OpenACS Development: Re: Notes from OpenACS 6 Design Discussion in Heidelberg

Posted by Jun Yamog on

The first 3 points seems to be a direction to create some sort of object persistence layer.  Although I am not fully against it, it moves us farther away from the roots of ACS.  That is make your sql get the data, etc.

There are also negatives on it as none sql aware developers may abuse the system.  The one object manipulator is not much of a problem, the problem are the ::list api.

What is the end goal we would like to achieve is making this items?

Where is OpenACS going to?  Do we want scalability, rapid application development, better integration, etc?

Maybe by making an over all technical goal we can prioritize the items.
