Hi Robert, On Thursday, August 22, 2002, 9:40:35 AM, you wrote: RMM> Hi, never looked at it yet. I'll have to check out. Where can I find RMM> this script? Never released publicly, because it's not really finished. If you are really interested, I can send it to you so you can have a look. RMM> This implies that you use a database in the background. Not necessarily. What you really do with the data is up to you. I currently have functions that allow to set up event chains; you are then able to fire up events in your code (e.g. New-client-object-to-insert etc.) and then listen to that kind of event in other parts of your code (i.e. the DB abstraction layer that takes care of actually insert the data in a DB, or a browser for client objects that should update its display, or a selection list in some form that should add the new object to the list, and so on).

As I said, it was written only to fit my needs thus not publicly released; however, as times goes on, I'm going to try to make it more generic; so, even if my code will not be useful to your project, maybe I can contribute some thoughts. :-) RMM> Golden rule of open-source software: Release early, release often ;-)) You're right, but that might then set compatibility requirements with badly designed early code... ;-) RMM> I recognized that we reached the limit of what can be done with such a RMM> concept and the available web technology. I will probably be asking questions in the future then, since discovering the limits of such an approach is what my teacher is interested in. :-) Regards, Gabriele. -- Gabriele Santilli <[g--santilli--tiscalinet--it]> -- REBOL Programmer Amigan -- AGI L'Aquila -- REB:
