Subject [jira] [Commented] (COUCHDB-1643) Switch to V8
Date Sat, 26 Jan 2013 07:39:14 GMT


Jason Smith commented on COUCHDB-1643:

A few more (starting to overlap a bit but IMO that is fine):

5. require() is not possible. There is no access to any functions/objects/APIs except what
is given. In fact, require() is to load from the ddoc, not Node.js.
6. Nothing from the "couch" side of the call stack is visible, e.g. `(new Error).stack` is
7. DOS is not possible, e.g. while(true) {}

> I’d like to propose that we switch to the V8 JavaScript engine to mitigate the various
issues we have with SpiderMonkey.
> This ticket acts as the meta-issue where we can discuss whether we all agree and what
needs doing. individual tasks then can get their own tickets.
