Subject RE: Cocoon Port
Date Mon, 14 Oct 2002 20:34:18 GMT

1) is not an objective, imho
2) I've no clue
3) I don't get this. Why would .net be any better for Smalltalk and Eiffel
support? and MC++ is a different story though
4) I don't get this too. If you want Cocoon on Unix/Linux, then Mono is like
to fly to NYC from DC via Tokio, I guess
5) Ok
5) unless Cocoon's core developers decide to support .NET, this project will
fail. I mean porting Cocoon to .net. Porting is NOT a long lasting fun.
It'll be boring after few weeks of trying to catch up with the scratchpad.
Creating new stuff is interesting, re-creating someone's deeds is
interesting only while you perceive it as .net learning excersize.

I think that it's better to put more efforts in making Cocoon better, than
to try to port it to C#.

My objectives are as follows:

1) Use Avalon C# Port
2) Take advantage of .Net benefits: caching, codedom,
xml integration (possibly could be a disadvantage) :)
3) Language support. Tha ability to have cocoon
extensions, xsp written in smalltalk,java, eiffel,
cobol would be nice
4) Have this run on Mono and other .Net environments.
5) It's a great framework. Why can't .Net developers
5) It's fun
