[Zope] repository with revisions and verson control
Wed, 18 Jun 2003 20:59:42 +0200
I'm working on project where the implementation of some kind of repository for
various types of documents is necessary. The main features to implement for
this repository are:
- version control:
- undoing changes
- rolling back to any revision
- immediate (read only) acces to every revision
- files locking
Each change made to a single document should be writen as a single revision
for this object only (CVS like bechaviour) and where rollbacks and locking
must be possible for each, single object where is possible.
The repository will work through independent interface created in project and
not through ZMI.
I'm relatively new in Zope and Python. I understood the general concept of
ZODB and it's long transactions (which seems to be a base for repository like
I've checked OFSP and it's Version support... nice idea but unfortunately I'll
need to create a private sesion for each accesed document... it does't looks
like solution rather like workaround. Also the project seems a bit abandoned
The concept of my project is closer to CVS like system than to one presented
I'm strongly determined to implementy this in clean Zope/ZODB. I don't want to
loose the benefits of object database (i'll loose it in CVS solutions)
because in future the features like ZOE and e.g. DirectoryStorage will be
very handy for me.
Is there a way to implement such thing in easier way than writing the support
for using ZODB transtactions in project from scratch?
