…I have tendancies to be an architecture astronaut. I came up with this really great OOified, XMLdriven, App Server hosted persistant singleton cache architecture for a web program thingy I’m trying to do.
It turns out that I use the XML as a configuration file, which dosn’t leverage any of the advantages of XML. I have one object which exports a horrendous interface of an array of hash tables and the cache is not in an app server as I’ve not had time to play with mod_perl.
I’m moving towards my design; but slowly so. I really need to think about how a user would want to use the system, which is what Dave always says.
