Forum OpenACS Q&A: Response to Article on ACS x Zope

Posted by Michael Feldstein on
Now that we're nearing a first release for 4.x, I thought it might be
interesting to revive this thread. While some of the conversation
here is specific to Zope's architecture and philosophy, it seems
to me that some of these posts read equally well when you
substitute "OpenACS 4.2" for "Zope." I suppose one of the core
issues is the inevitable trade-offs that happen when you move to
a more robust, heavily *engineered* architecture, which is what's
happening in the move from 3.x to 4.x. I thought it might be
interesting to bring up this thread again as a sort of gut check.
