Subject Re: creating webpages for axis c++
Date Fri, 24 Oct 2003 13:03:43 GMT
Hi dims:

This workflow seems a little odd to me.  If we're going to be using Forrest,
why are we checking in the targets/axis version at all?  Shouldn't the www
machine just re-forrest the site instead of copying from a checked-in
"built" copy?  This argument is based on the DRY (don't repeat yourself)
principle - if there's an opportunity for things to get out of sync, they
will.  We don't check in .class files, for instance....

Can forrest work dynamically?  I'd really like to be able to change some XML
on my local copy of the site and then just reload my browser to see the
effects, rather than having to go through an explicit compilation/build
