Seaside to Smalltalk

Cherniak Software develops custom client solutions using a CASE tool written in Cincom® VisualWorks® and GemStone. We have added a Seaside interface that uses the VisualWorks window specifications for component layout and the CASE tool meta data for behavior. No additional coding by the application developer is required. Each Seaside session uses a dedicated image so session handling is consistent with the fat client.  Aside from providing us with an automated web interface, we find considerable benefit from the code being Smalltalk all the way down. We have even been able to leverage the VisualWorks OpenTalk image to image interface for load balancing, using Apache. [scribd id=52213865 key=key-2hw47y2vok0dm3yx3lhl mode=list]
