Here are a few items I have on my list of things that may prove useful in the future:

  • An XFORMS interface
  • A database driver for Oracle
  • Facilities for web services
  • Reporting facilities, perhaps via PDF

If anybody would like to volunteer their services to help with any of these I would be more than grateful.

I used the sample-application on your website for a project. (before Radicore was online). I did some adjustments to integrate the html-editor FCKeditor in the system. (http://www.fckeditor.net/). Could this be a nice addition to the Radicore framework?

FCKeditor relies heavilly on javascript, so you loose the indepence of javascript. And it doesn't work with client side xsl-transformation in FireFox because it uses document.write a lot, which isn't supported in XHTML. It works ok in Explorer.

I will try to find some time to integrate it in de Radicore codebase, if you or other people are interested.


I also made some bugfixes to the sample application. But the things I checked, seem to be corrected in de Radicore framework. I try to do a better check within the next few weeks.

Keep up the good work Wink

I'll be able to help out with the Oracle drivers.

I've been playing with your development methodology for a year or more, and implemented a primitive set of database classes that let the user choose between MySQL and SQLite at installation time. I say "primitive" because it was barely working when business needs took me away from it for a number of months. Indeed, I just revisited your web site and downloaded RADICORE this week. I am still going through everything, but since it's based on the previous framework, the learning curve shouldn't be too steep. I was impressed with the framework before it became RADICORE and so far, this looks much better.

I have been an Oracle developer and occasional DBA since 1990. Currently I'm a PL/SQL developer; I've been doing PL/SQL development for as long as PL/SQL has existed.

Currently the choice of which DBMS to use is down to a single setting in the CONFIG.INC file which can be changed without any sort of re-installation. I currently have both MySQL and PostgreSQL installed so I can switch between them with great ease, just to prove that what works in one also works in the other.

If you can help with an Oracle driver that would be greatly appreciated.

Here is an update to the wish-list.

The Oracle database driver now exists, as documented in http://www.tonymarston.net/php-mysql/oracle.html.

The ability to create PDF reports now exists, as documented in http://www.tonymarston.net/php-mysql/output-to-pdf.html.

The ability to add javascript now exists, as documented in http://www.tonymarston.net/php-mysql/radicore-and-javascript .html.
