We're porting a web application to manage a collection of DNS and DHCP servers. At startup time, we talk to each of these DNS and DHCP servers to ask them what zones they know about (in the case of the DNS servers) and what pools of addresses they use (in the case of the DHCP servers). This information changes rarely, and costs some time to acquire. Actually having said this just now, I'd say a better solution for us would be to actually initialize an object when the user logs in -- we can tolerate that delay, and that gives us a relatively fresh snapshot of the current situation. Don't know how that changes things. It feels like it should make it easier. > (Although, if you aren't planning to use any third-party products, you > might actually want to look into using Zope3 instead, which is way > cooler, but a tad more complicated to get started with). Hmm. I'd be willing to use Z3, I think -- I haven't done Zope development for about 6-9 months, but all my previous experience has been on 2.x. The other people involved in this are all brand new to Zope. Why should I use Z3? Does it have better documentation? :) -roy _______________________________________________ Zope maillist - Zope@zope.org http://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope ** No cross posts or HTML encoding! ** (Related lists - http://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope-announce http://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope-dev )
