Subject Re: Re[4]: DatabaseXActions

Hi Andrew, All,

I've held off posting these patches as I don't think they address the bigger 
issue of immutable request parameters. I posted a question about these last 
week (form validator problems) but received no replies.

I've fixed several bugs in FormValidationAction (nullable + default values 
not picked up) + in DatabaseDeleteAction (always returns null) but 
unfortunately these were done before the rotating logfile changes were made.

I'm really busy atm but when I get a moment I'll update my local Cocoon to 
use the latest code (I'll probably wait for the release candidate) and then 
make these changes again + submit diffs.

Can somebody please explain to me (even if its a 1-liner) why request 
parameters are immutable?

I would like to be able to pass the request through a chain of actions, each 
one able to modify the request parameters so that the following action only 
has to look in the request params. Currently I'm using request attributes as 
an override mechanism (+ modifying the actions to look there) but this will 
fail as soon as I want to use request attributes at the same time as request 
parameters.

Thanks + keep up the great work,

Chris
