OK, so I read through the messages on 5.4, but me being still
comparatively inexperienced at some of this, so I would like two
ask a couple dumb questions. First, as background, I have dabbled
in WO since I took PWOI on 4.5 and have not really done a lot
professionally with it. I don't use Wonder or WOLips, though I
plan to start. I have Eclispe, and have dabbled in doing WO with
it, but the one actually deployed WO app I have was done in XCode.
It is a fairly simple database driven app for a comedy club, that
completely did not require WO, I just did it for fun and to learn
more WO. Nothing too complicated about it, but it does use
Openbase at the back-end.
So, as my development machine is now 10.5 and the deployment
machine is currently 10.4 but may soon upgrade to 10.5,
1. should I upgrade to WO 5.4, and what should I do to protect the
5.3 frameworks? I saw the message about setting wo.wosystemroot=/
some/place/or/other but where(how) do I do this?
Should be possible, I imagine, to override per project.
2. should I get Eclipse 3.3 (I think I saw that 3.3 was not
compatible with Wonder or WOLips or whatever, but on this list
people seem to talking about using 3.3)
Eclipse 3.3.1 is the preferred IDE these days with latest WOLips (Not
3. is there any quick and easy source for tutorials for this stuff
(i.e. Wonder and WOLips)?
4. for the visual side of developing a WO site, can I use a general
web-design tool (DreamWeaver, iWeb, whatever) or are there major
issues with doing this?
Sure. These tools may not understand part-components or indeed
Do not post admin requests to the list. They will be ignored.
