I'm getting pretty lost. I could read everything 4 times and maybe
understand what's going on, but mainly I'm being left in the dust.
What does any of this do with creating a generic standard from which
databases can share a connection. We have something generic,
flexible, and so far it's usable. There are definite *problems* such
as the database error never getting to the browser. Is it fixable?
Once we get into table-level discussions, we're beyond the purpose of
allowing many recipes to use the same database connections. That's
my opinion, and if someone wants to dumb the discussion down into why
a database standard is mucking around on the table level, I'd like to
hear about it.
Once we get into dictating *yet more* how database recipe authors are
going to write their database calls, we've got a serious problem.
ADOdb is class based and not every recipe author gets classes as it
is. I planned on writing up some hints for how to pass and retrieve
queries for authors. Anything that complicates that beyond a quick
ADOdb tutorial, or the tutorial already in the ADOdb documentation is
not welcome by me.
So, if the dust settles and I can understand what's going on, I'd
love to help out. So far, this conversation is pretty far beyond me
and I can no longer determine if this newer recipe idea would be
usable by recipe authors.
