Subject RE: multiple sub projects
Date Thu, 26 Sep 2002 18:28:13 GMT
My interest in multiple sub-apps is more related to maintenence and
post-launch life cycle issues. 

Modular development is nice, but to me fine-grained control of override
behavior for every aspect of the deployed application is crucial-- that way
I can add functionality or upgrade any feature of an application without
touching any of the original version's code/media/configuration, while
keeping it all in one deployment unit.

This makes it possible to more organically migrate (or rollback) from one
version to another.  It also reduces the amount of duplicated
code/JSPs/media/etc drastically when closely similar versions can share

Pardon me if this questions seems a bit daft, but what does using multiple
sub-applications buy you other than splitting the app. into logical chunks,
each with its own config file?
