I'have been looking for something like this for a while, and found
nothing really interesting. The most interesting are
- dynamic Webserver + Macromedia Flash (w/ XML) + webbrowser
- or corba server + corba client (home made)
- Jabber API (mainly XMLStream) seems to do this but not really
used (elsewhere than Jabber)
BG>Also how does WebWare compare to ZOPE and Cold Fusion?
First at all Cold Fusion is for me something different than
Zope, or Webware. It's more like php3 (server side script )
Zope, Webware, Quixnote, Shunk, and Twisted are all application
server. You design a application ( !=3D not only script that interact
I only know Webware and Zope. But (beside i'm a Zope developper at
work), I think Zope is really to hard to code w/, to maintain.
In fact, the power of Zope is the large amount of 'Products' (read
component) that can be used. But it is a weakness too, because this
products all interact w/ others, and more you use products, more you
have a complicated API, and some hard to find bugs (we found a bug in
the Traversal code last week !! people ever used Zope will understand
why I say that)
But something else heart me. Why there is so much Python App Server
I think Quixnote have some nice feature too .. (not so different
form webware ). Perhaps we should stop to invent the wheel ?
