Subject Re: DayTrader - porting MarketSummaryInterval changes from 2.0 to 1.2 and preparing to release
Date Wed, 03 Oct 2007 17:17:29 GMT
So to cl;arify I think DayTrader may be mis-characterized as only a  
benchmark.  I think it is used for a variety of functions of which  
only one aspect is performance.  the other aspects are testing  
infrastructure, sample application (which includes deployments plans  
for various pieces of functionality, etc.).

With that in mind perhaps we should change it from performance  
benchmark to something else.  I'm concerned about pulling this at the  
very end.  I agree that we don't want to put out a sample that can be  
used inappropriately but in the end we don't really tell anyone what  
they can do with the software.  I'm concerned about making changes to  
DayTrader because of commercial positioning.  For this reason I'd  
rather add the comment about relevance of the runtime mode.  I think  
simply adding the comment is adequate.

If we're going for best practices I don't think anyone would say the  
app as it is written today is a best practice but more of a swiss  
army knife of tools.

It sounds like there are varying viewpoints so perhaps we let the  
discussion percolate and put it to a vote.
