hamilton *hammett* verissimo Another special person... just like everyone else

If you're around Olympia, WA, you should stop by and attend to Chris Bilson's presentation on MonoRail. Quoting ssdotnet web site:

"Developing web based applications is full of challenges and pitfalls: session state, view state, post backs, control trees, and page lifecycles. How many times have you heard the dreaded, “I clicked refresh and it debited my account twice!?!?” A number of people have come up with clever ways to simplify web apps. Some don’t actually make it more complicated. Let’s talk about one framework, Monorail, some of the things it brings to the table, including it’s ultra-simple data-mapping API, ActiveRecord, and finish off with a discussion about database unit testing."

Being a little nitpick here I do need to state that MonoRail and ActiveRecord are two completely separated projects. MonoRail offers some level of integration with ActiveRecord and the Windsor container. But, yada yada yada, that's irrelevant. It's cool that people are talking about it. :-)

Sorry...I threw that together on little sleep. I gave several possible topics to Paul Mehner (the head-dude at ssdotnet) an dhe picked more than one. Emphasis: I'm not a Castle expert, but I have been lurking for a while and have used Castle for several spikes. I haven't used Castle for a "real" project at work for a number of work reasons.

I will post slides and sample code on my web site, probably minutes before the presentation. I could e-mail you a link if you'd like.

Hey! Can you share the reasons? :-)

I'll keep an eye on your blog for the slides. Thanks for letting me know.

Reasons for not adopting Castle for "real" projects (yet)?

briefly:
* Corporate policy to always use stored procs
* Too many drag-n-drop web page developers
* Perceived complexity (I am trying to address this through demonstration)

I am working on changing these things where I work, but I am only one guy, so far. The nice thing about Castle is that I can pick technologies to introduce one at a time, not having to do it all at once.

On one project I am working on, I am refactoring a bunch of spaghetti code into Active Record classes and getting rid of stored procs. The project was a big failure, so I have more room to dictate things like, "I am not using stored procs."

If NHibernate only supported stored procs, just so I could get us over that one hump...
