Forum OpenACS Development: New Interface for Calling Database Functions

Dear all,

some of you might have noted the wiki-page calling-database-functions describing a new interface in acs-core for calling functions/procedures stored in the database.

In short, the new interface has less overhead, is more powerful (handling functions returning tables, etc.) and has been tested with PostgreSQL 14 and Oracle 19c. This is essentially a rework of code in xotcl-core and part of the OpenACS agenda. The code is independent of xotcl-core.

The existing interface will continue to work and will be probably deprecated some time in the future.
