Forum OpenACS Development: Re: Apache now has nsv like support, tcl

Posted by Malte Sussdorff on
Areas which need major development:

- Performance of the TCL support in Apache
- Porting of all ns_* functions into a mod_ns
-- Alternatively rewrite the whole acs wrapper procedures to use whatever Apache offers natively.
- Make sure that the DB drivers for Oracle and PostgreSQL offer bind support and behave equally to the toolkit.

What is to gain:

- We run on Apache *if* a couple of Modules are installed.

My take:

- The gain is not worth the effort.

Note: This is no judgement on Apache vs. AOLserver. I'm just pointing out the costs and the (IMHO) low gains.
