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

Posted by Jun Yamog on

Sorry did not mean to have a negative discussion.  Just would like to point out some of the possible pitfalls of some items.

I think having create, edit, etc. standard manipulators is good and helpful.  I would lean on having default routines if those methods are not overridden instead of auto generated routines. I guess there are the very similar.  I would lean on the pregenerated methods be not easily visible by the developers and that you need to create overrides rather than editing existing pregenerated methods to override.  So in order to override a standard method you create rather than edit existing auto generated standard methods.
