2002-01-17 Thread Tony McDonald
Hi all, I want to upgrade to python 2.1.2 (from an existing 2.1 installation) and at the same time upgrade to 2.5b4 in the hopes that this combination will fix the threading problem under Solaris. Q1: Is this the right combination to use, I've read that I should use 2.1.2 and 2.4.4 (possible

Hi Tony, The combination of Zope 2.4.4 and Python 2.1.2 will be the right combination. If you can't wait for Zope 2.4, you can use Zope 2.5 (which I believe already has the requisite fixes), although of course it's still in beta. I think you'll need to recompile your extensions -- I'm not

I do not know what you mean by a 'monkeypatch' but it is certainly worth it to add the patch to 2.3.x and 2.4.x branches. Thanks very much for the patch! We don't maintain 2.3.X anymore (at least not that I know of, although somebody probably should). And the 2.4 branch is a little up in

I have had a lot of interest in a couple of my products, and I would like to ensure they are as stable as I can make them. I have heard a lot on here about unit-testing, is there a guide to creating unit-tests? Is there a procedure, or something to follow so that I can be sure I am testing the

[Zope-dev] unrestrictedTraverse and URLs ending in slash.

2002-01-17 Thread Lennart Regebro
I quite often use URLs that end in a slash (in fact, I prefer it that way, since I then can add methods easily without having to care about if the url is the root '/' or another object). This got me into trouble, though, since unrestrictedtraverse can't handle URLs that end in a slash. I have

Chris (or anybody else), Have you tried to install Beta4 using the linux binary package yet? I'm trying to write a patch against it but the installation does in fact bomb out each time I try to run it, even freshly untarred. The source TGZ works fine and dandy, however. It seems
