Subject Re: Velocity + Database
Date Fri, 08 Aug 2003 18:08:13 GMT
This is getting way off topic, and I apologize for that, but I was just 
curious as to whether anyone has talked about porting Velosurf to .NET? 
-- so that it could be used with the .NET versions of Velocity and 
Maverick (for example).

There was some work in this regarding with Hibernate, but the developers 
seemed to get bogged down in the complexity of the task.
