[Zope-DB] mxODBC Zope Database Adapter
Thu, 11 Jul 2002 10:21:28 +0200
I just joined this list and scanned the archives a bit... I'm
looking for information on how to test a Zope DA for compliance
to your Zope DA standards (if there are any ;-).
I have read the "How to writre a DA" document
from Chris Petrilli and scanned through the code for a
few DAs. I now have an mxODBC Zope DA written from scratch
which works together with Z SQL Methods, can connect to any
ODBC data source and send queries to it. Cool :-)
But now I'm a bit lost:
* is there are test suite I can use to figure out which parts
still need tweaking ?
* is there a standard set of admin interfaces a Zope DA has
to provide ?
* are there any extensions to the standard interface (currently
there only seems to be a single .query() method in there),
which I could implement to better expose the rich ODBC
APIs (e.g. catalog methods come to mind) ?
And, since this is my first Zope product :):
* is there a standard way to ship Zope products (the most common
seems to be: unzip + restart, but that doesn't strike me as
user-friendly and it also doesn't work with C extensions unless
you ship binary releases)
