Well, then it may be difficult to get zope to behave like the "other" systems, right? > These other systems you mention are using the availability of a response > stream as a surrogate for RESPONSE.isClientConnected(). I'd rather have > an explicit RESPONSE.isClientConnected(). This is not correct. The systems I mentioned do also have the possibility to check if the client is still connected, it's just that they additionally prevent writing to a response which will never get delivered. This is quite reasonable IMO. > Although, it would make sense to raise an exception if someone tried to > write to the Zope response stream, in the rare cases when this does happen. I know we are talking about extreme cases here. But the behavior of java and mod_perl may prevent the whole system from falling over on a loaded server. This is made worse by the relative small number of threads which are running on a stock zope. cheers, oliver _______________________________________________ Zope-Dev maillist - [EMAIL PROTECTED] http://lists.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope-dev ** No cross posts or HTML encoding! ** (Related lists - http://lists.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope-announce http://lists.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope )
