Hi all, After trying to get zope3-style locale information from a zope2 request for another task today I discovered I had no idea what the plan was regarding uniting these two request models in short-term or long-term (or even if there are any plans).
I've heard rumours that ultimately the preferred manner of integration of z2 and z3 requests was to replace the z2 ZPublisher with the z3 zope.publisher. Perhaps those are just rumours, I have no idea. In any event, that would certainly be long-term. But are we doing anything in the short-term? My naive idea was that perhaps we should start building FrankenHTTPRequest which extended the original ZPublisher HTTPRequest but then also implemented zope.publisher's IHTTPRequest interface. This would give us a fairly safe combination of both requests and enable more zope3 applications to work as-is on Zope 2 (the one example that comes to mind is zope3's formlib which requires locale information to be present on the active request based on zope.publisher's IHTTPRequest). To be honest I'm only throwing random ideas out here just to spark a discussion. Maybe you all have already figured out the appropriate game plan. Either way, I'd just like to know :) - Rocky -- Rocky Burt ServerZen Software -- http://www.serverzen.com News About The Server (blog) -- http://www.serverzen.net
