Subject [jira] [Commented] (COUCHDB-1643) Switch to V8
Date Wed, 16 Jan 2013 10:52:14 GMT


Benoit Chesneau commented on COUCHDB-1643:

I hope that when we talk about v8 we are for now speaking about v8 for now. We don't really
need the api of node for m/r and maybe it's time to consider the couchapp as a full engine
embedded. Also I think that the JS API in chrome apps is quite better and than the one provided
by node. A little more strict imo. But again that shouldn't stop the discussion about using
v8 or not. different implementations than using node and its api are possible. Also the API
and the view protocol must be usable by other languages even functional. 

About the sandboxing, this is a requirement imo. You can't execute such code via a server
without barriers. I don't want that a malicious user could put a view reading others parts
on the HD. At least by default.

issues we have with SpiderMonkey.

needs doing. individual tasks then can get their own tickets.
