Forum OpenACS Development: Response to OpenACS wish-list
It didn't compile with gcc 2.96. The author claimed that was due
to bugs in gcc, and he was quite rude about the whole thing.
I switched to the released version of htDig and had no problem
compiling it with the same "broken" compiler. I also found that
the site had a friendly, we're here to help tone, in marked
contrast to the swish++ site which has more of a "don't bother
me riffraff" tone.
This has nothing to do with either one's appropriateness for
OpenACS, which I have not attempted to evaluate, but I would
choose htDig any time it would serve the purpose just because I
found the attitude of the swish++ author to be so offputting. Life's
too short to deal with people with bad attitudes!
Now, another search suggestion - I see no mention of wwwDB
(http://www.wwwdb.org). It supports both Postgres and Oracle
and that's all I know about it; I saw it mentioned in a list of open
source tools for Oracle. Might be worth someone's while to
check out, though.
