Thanks for the reply. I gave the site a look. Is the code browseable
anywhere online, or is that considered a security risk? I visited the
CVS web interface at SourceForge and looked around a bit. Is that just
for the engine?
I know very little about CORBA other than that SOAP is a smaller,
slower, XML-based attempt to do a similar thing. Does the web site use
the C++ SWORD engine? Was the SOAP stuff killed or did it just die off
on its own?
If I got into this project, it would have to be very slowly. I've used
CVS, but more as a novelty than a necessity (sharing code with at most
two other people). Also no one's ever had to see my JSP code so I'm
sure I don't use the best design principles. I have a lot to learn
about writing maintainable web app code.
Btw, I hope that graphics offer didn't sound over-eager; I just meant
I'd be happy to pitch in if there was work to be done that the graphics
gurus would trust an amateur with. I just realized the offer was
especially humorous given my website, which underwent somewhat of a
stripping down recently when it outgrew its old design. For something
less ridiculous, see http://homepage.mac.com/andrewvardeman/geneva, a
mock-up I did for a job application.
Thanks again and good night,
