Forum OpenACS Q&A: Bulk loading objects

Posted by C. R. Oldham on

I'm working on the datamodel for some oacs4 systems we are
building.  I'm trying to decide if some of our data should be
objects or not.  It seems like we would gain great permissions
granularity, but I'm worried about bulk data loads.  How would I go
about bulk-loading data that are objects?

You can take a look at the csv_foreach utility we built for dotLRN,
which helps us do bulk-uploading of objects by simplifying the
CSV part. Combine that with package_instantiate_object, and
you can do some good bulk uploading.
