Forum OpenACS Development: Response to Proper config.tcl for mixed-DB server?

Posted by Andrew Piskorski on
Don, I agree that a multi-db DB API is a nice-to-have but not critical
feature for OpenACS.

"Splitting" an OpenACS installation across different types of RDBMS,
well, yeah, I can't even imagine a situation where that would make
sense.  But some folks might need to write a particular application to
use a secondary database for some functions, and being able to use the
same ACS DB API for that is very nice.

As for the switch statement vs. bootstrap/installer stuff, I have my
own opinions about that (surprise surprise), but I haven't looked into
the bootstrap/installer stuff for OpenACS yet, so I can't say anything
else useful about it at this point.
