Forum OpenACS Development: The WING project

12: The WING project (response to 1)
Posted by Ken Williams on

I'm a pending grad student working on a project peripherally related to this, and Rafael pointed me to this discussion.

WING ( is written in Perl and runs under mod_perl and Apache.  It does IMAP and NNTP, and claims to scale well.  It interfaces with an RDMBS.

The author, Malcom Beattie, is a pretty well-known Perl guy, though I can't vouch for the quality of this particular project since I haven't tried it myself yet.
