Hi Mario,

This project of yours sounds interesting! I'm building a system at the
moment to handle large amounts of university data
- doc types are users, roles, and groups.
- users are all staff, students, external
- groups are hierarchically and flexibly arranged from faculty, school,
subject, semester, tutorials, to student group projects.
- roles represent user->group relations, and represent student enrolment,
tutor assignment, and administrator privileges.
- couchdb access is by applications.
- each application can attach its own data to users, groups or roles, so
many apps don't need their own db.

There's no "literature" for it yet, or even much documentation - but I'd be
happy to discuss it with you further if you're interested. I'd love to know
more about what you're planning,  as well.

Hi. My team is working on a project with the following details:

- Backend is CouchDB
- The user enters his login details and retrieves data from the databse.
- flex is used for front end

its a college department manager and the actors in the system are student,
faculty and the admin. I want to get information about other projects on the
same lines with couchDB as the back end... this is required for my
literature survey on the project.

Plese let me know of such projects. You can also give me links where I can
find more on this....
Thank you,

Mario Dcunha
