PermaLink Site Upgrades Now Less Painful for Ektron's CMS400.Net10/17/2005 12:50 AM
It's always nice to see positive articles on something you've worked on for a few months.  The brief limelight appearance for my creation was in the Intranet Journal recently. People who use Lotus Domino just don't understand what's involved in something as cleanly built in as Lotus' replication.   Conversely, people who've never used Lotus Domino have no idea how easy it is when replication takes care of your application and database...they just think it's as painful as setting up MSSQL replication

For the .Net world, you have to figure out which files and directories to send over to make your database work when pushing your site over from staging server to production server.  You also have to send over your database and any schema changes (but you might have tables that only belong on staging or production server but not both).

In the J2EE (err..sorry...JEE now that Sun renamed it) world, it's only slightly better, assuming you have a J2EE server like JBoss that can hot-deploy a .ear/.war file because you still have to worry about the database.
