Python Notes

And lot's of other fine stuff can be found on:
Python Notes: "
I'm now trying to do some tests with the concept, using the upcoming CherryPy2 framework. I've already adapted the object publisher to look for classes, and to instantiate and dispatch requests to them. It was a pretty minor change. It has one potential advantage, in that I can handle long-running persistent sessions using clever Javascript hacks such as the ones used by GMail. In these apps, each client connection has a long-running component, doing direct data requests to the server (using plain HTML, XML or SOAP) in the background. This component is hidden in the browser in a non-visible frame, and it does not have to be reloaded every time the page is refreshed. It's an interesting technique already used for highly interactive websites."

Please not this guy is working on cherrypy2 as well :)
