Subject Re: postgres as core database...
Date Sun, 10 Sep 2006 18:05:58 GMT
I don't think this should be impossibly difficult.

I just checked in trunk and the only modules that use  system- 
database are activemq-broker and openejb.  I think the openejb  
dependency must be a mistake, I'll look into it.  The activemq-broker  
dependency is real, but you'd probably want to run activemq off of  
postgres also anyway.

The minimum possible work to do would be to replace the existing  
system-database module/config with a new one with exactly the same  
name (possibly a different version) that connects to postgres.  Name  
the datasource the same and things just might work :-)

Slightly cleaner would be to deploy a new module with a more  
descriptive name and also deploy modified activemq-broker and  
activemq modules that use it for jdbc persistence.   Depending on the  
openejb dependency you might need to redeploy that too.

I wonder if we can use plugins somehow to make this swap simpler?
