[Zope-dev] multiple database connections

2002-03-07 Thread Jerome Alet
Hi, First I have to say I've not tried what is discussed below, I'm just thinking about how this could be done... Say I have several relationnal databases, both have an identical structure. Since these databases are identical, all my ZSQL methods can be used with any of them. So I plan to

Hi: I think that the possibility of having inactive objects, objects that are instantied, exist in the ZODB and in the folder tree but are invisibile to the Zope machinery (acquisition, rendering, itemizing) by setting/unsettting a property flag would also be something of extreme

A WebDAV client may request a timeout length for a lock, but it's basically just a suggestion. You say you investigated again some time later. Zope's default timeout is thirty minutes. Clients can ask for longer ones and Zope will obey, but the 30 minutes is granted for 'infinite' timeout

Hey all - Boy, it's been a long time since I've hung around here. Anyway, I think we've found a bug somewhere in the zope transaction machinery. Every now and then, a backend will get into 'idle in transaction' state. After that, no work on that backend ever commits - the 'END' query just never
