Yeah, with a sadly, but unsuprisingly, CA-slant of "big corporate helps poor
struggling open source by putting RDB(woo!) into it"
Anyone would think that Zope didn't have any RDB support before they came along,
sheesh ;-) And I don't like the "open source, flat-file database, ZODB" comment.
APE is PART of the ZODB, so they're not replacing it as they imply.
So, CA open source a databsae that's loosing market share (Ingres - can anyone
say m o z i l l a, although there's already SAPDB, MySQL and PostGres) and chuck
a few thousand dollars to get a ZIngresDA and an APE schema for it to make it
look like they have an open source story to compete with IBM's?
Or am I just beign too cynical here? ;-)
