But it can be abused too. This is one of the "plus" we found a year ago.


AFAIK, the initial wisdom started with scheme, then we switched to
javascript (thanks to Christian Oliver). All is documented in the 1 year
of development in maillists. After Flow development reached a milestone,
people started to comment about the pros and cons of using Javascript.
Here is a interesting mail of these times (from Stefano):

Now we have a year of Flow in Cocoon and based on our experience with Flow
it is time to think how to improve it. I am not sure if Java is the best.
Sometimes I will like to have the power of the eclipse IDE to debug my
show flows, but .... In short I think this is a very interesting discusion
that for sure will bring Flow to the next level.
