[REBOL] Medium+ Scale Developments
From: brett:codeconscious at: 9-Jan-2002 23:20
Some time ago I was working on a Lan dependent Multiuser client server
system. I and a colleague were asked to look into how it could be
re-developed to work on the Web/Net. We looked at the available technologies
(a somewhat generous term for what we saw) and decided that our highly
interactive/conversational style system should really only be done with Java
I was never very happy with that conclusion but it was basically a
consequence of very early validity checks and dependent lookup fields. If we
could repartition the user interaction/use-case conversation we might have
been able to use more
simpler technology - but we weren't that confident of doing so nor of
getting approval of later validity checks etc.
Well the question became moot when the company was bought out and the system
mothballed. A few years down the track now and a remote possibility exists
that this re-development may yet occur. The question though has been at the
back of my mind for a while.
My question is have any of you have thoughts about this type of scenario and
how/if Rebol would be relevent to it - especially considering a financial
system context? What are the architectural possibilities?
Just exploring ideas. Thoughts appreciated.
