Re: XOOPS scalability
Xoops and scalability IS a problem in my opinion. When I have a look at the xoops2 core, i don´t know if i should cry or be happy. The functionality is good, the core is well structured, but I would wish that more developers would take time to use a zend debugger and take the one or two hours which it takes to step through the code.
There are so many features where the OOP Concept was pushed without caring for performance. The XoopsObject, The Criteria/CriteriaCompo.
The smarty core is a hell of function calls simply to load a template, which could be a simple file include plus some checks and assignments.
We have many XOOPS modules. I like xoops, but I´m not happy what some of the developers made of it. :(
