Re: Re[2]: Objective-C 2.0 and other new features in Leopard

Thom,

By your logic we would have trashed GNUstep-gui and Gorm would never have been 
written since, as I recall, a few years ago you needed to create your GUI's in 
IB and translate them into gmodels.  Sound familiar?

I suggest that we start thinking about constructive ways to update GNUstepWeb 
and even consider creating something akin to WOBuilder in GNUstep.   Given that 
GNUstep has an equivalent to EOBuilder already (In GDL2 there's DBModeller 
which can create eomodels and a palette to integrate them) that is certainly a 
possibility.

Later, GJC

Manuel,

Gee, your responses are one hell of a cop-out.

What about for those of us who don't have an 8 year old copy of
WebObjects 4.5 to start off with? tough shit?

again, tools for your own little world, and I'm of the opinion that
the code should just be removed from the GNUstep tree because of its
sheer uselessness to everyone except a few who have tools that ARE NOT
FREE SOFTWARE IN THE FIRST PLACE.

-Thom
