Subject DatabaseSelectAction question
Date Wed, 29 May 2002 03:22:39 GMT
I posted a question on cocoon-users a while ago asking for  help with 
this Action class and took the source code upstairs with me to watch the
end of the NHL playoff game (Trawna lost in overtime - hooray!).

As I have now read the code in some depth, I would like to ask whether 
anyone has actually used this class for anything other than providing 
workload for the compile engines.

I am reasonably certain that DatabaseSelectAction isn't useful as it is 
in 2.0.1 (looks the same in 2.0.3) and would like to know whether 
anyone on cocoon-devel feels the class should be worked on.

I would like to use it for simple table lookups which load parameters 
into the sitemap. The user-case I have in mind is where you look up a 
single row of a user profiles table and pass the user's preferences to 
various elements of the pipeline. These could be passed to 
transformations as parameters or used to construct file or path names.

The class is very short right now but it appears to have some 
questionable structure. I suspect it is a work-in-progress so please 
don't recieve my criticism negatively. At the very least, I would like 
to add some comments to the code and thereby to the JavaDoc.
