Fun with Fuel

August 17, 2011 16:17:42.000

Mariano has some fun things to show off with Fuel at ESUG:

The first thing it come to my mind, was the following: debug something from the workspace and in the middle of the debugging, serialize the debugger into a file. Then open another image, materialize the debugger, and continue debugging. The good news is that it worked from the first shoot! Nice! I will show it in ESUG. Now, the second thing was something that was in my head since a couple of months: use Fuel to get a byte array representation of an object graph and store/retrieve it from a NoSQL database. Of course, there are several NoSQL databases, and even several wrappers for Pharo. For my experiments I choose Riak because I read it may have the best results. Runar Jordahl did the binding for such database and as many cases, the API is using HTTP protocol. Thanks to Sven Van Caekenberghe, we have now a wonderful HTTP library in Pharo Smalltalk: Zinc. Obviously, Riak client for Pharo uses Zinc.

Wish I could be at the conference or, failing that, that there was live streaming like last year :)
