Subject Re: SVN reorganisation complete, new site deployed
Date Thu, 25 Aug 2005 21:28:53 GMT
Henning,

well done. I really like the new repository layout. The ugly build tricks 
have gone now (and also my brand new ugly excludes for the maven plugins 
in the dist:build-bin target :-))

I ran the runtimetest for mysql and postgresql from the new torque/trunks 
svn directory and they run witout any errors.

The new site structure is also good. The idea with a wrapper site and the 
different releases linked below is much better than the old layout. Also, 
the new Torque front page page stressing what Torque can do is really 
nice.

However, in the section describing the generator, I'd like to put less 
emphasis on the capability of the generator to generate a schema from 
jdbc, as this only works for the most simple cases (for example, blob 
data and date fields are not working well (if at all) at the moment)
So I'd suggest to change the text from

to

The generator creates the O/R peer and object classes that allow your 
application to access the database. It also generates SQL scripts to 
create the tables in your database.

if you do not object to that.

Then, in my opinion, we should move some stuff from the runtime subsite to 
the main site. E.g. the tutorial is certainly not only covering the 
runtime, but the whole of Torque.

I will also look through the site, update stuff about the directory 
structure as I find it, and also move some bits around if they seem out of 
place. But I'm afraid I cannot match your speed, so this will take 
some time.
