Subject [jira] [Commented] (COUCHDB-1643) Switch to V8
Date Tue, 15 Jan 2013 21:12:13 GMT


Benoit Chesneau commented on COUCHDB-1643:

Does v8 have versionning now ? If not we will have the same problem we have with spidermonkey.

Or do you think to include the v8 sources in our own repo like nodejs to make sure everyone
will have the correct version? I would be +1 for such solution.

Anyway while we are here I would suggest some changes in the view server protocol to solve
such things:

- remove some serialization/deserialization steps: for example we could just pass erlang stream
to the view server
- make the view server more concurrent
- improve error handling

Does it require another ticket?

issues we have with SpiderMonkey.
