Subject Is Flow suitable for high throughput apps?
Date Mon, 10 Oct 2005 23:42:26 GMT
I've noticed the current trend to use flow for everything (I've just 
finished listening to the Bricks talk at the Cocoon get together 2005).

I think flow is fantastic, but I wonder if users would still be recommended 
to use custom actions and business objects instead of flow when dealing with 
high-traffic, non-stateful web pages?  The idea of all those continuations 
being maintained by the server for a high-volume page makes me shudder.

I'm talking about apps like a search page where some arguments are passed 
and Cocoon runs some business logic to return a results page.  It's tempting 
to use flow to simplify the process of gluing the business objects together 
but would that be a grossly inefficient thing to do in this case?
