[adm2-dev] ADM2 and Dynamics

  • Hi

    I have noticed that the POSSE_20 tag has been put on ADM2 stuff. Does this mean that Dynamics and the ADM2 have been merged together.

    Does this mean that the next commercial release (9.1D) will include the merged dynamics code and are there any dependencies in the ADM2 on being connected to the dynamics repository.

    I am thinking on writing an app, using the ADM2 and am wondering what the best course of action is.

    1. 9.1C ADM2

    2. ADM2 (POSSE_20)

    3. ADM2 (MAIN)

    An explanation of all this would be great and how its all going to work in the future. I am particularly interested in how Dynamics and the ADM2 are going to share the same code base.

    Kind Regards

  • It is correct that we have added the POSSE_20 flag to the ADM2 code and that

    the changes to the ADM2 code in POSSE_20 now support Dynamics.

    Having said that, this does not mean that Dynamics is required to make use

    of ADM2. It means that we are not spinning off a separate version of ADM2 to

    support Dynamics. In other words, any enhancements that are made to ADM2 to

    support Dynamics are made to standard ADM2. Obviously this means that there

    are features that are added to standard ADM2 that will only be available

    when Dynamics is running.

    If we separated the two from each other there would be several

    unsatidfactory implications:

    1) We'd have to maintain code in two places.

    2) Some of the benefits that have been applied to ADM2 to support Dynamics

    have spilled over into standard ADM2 as well. These would not be available

    if we had not merged them.

    3) Migration for users that have the desire to move to Dynamics is far

    easier if we have the same ADM2 code underlying everything.

    And the list goes on. Fear not... we are not forcing you to use Dynamics to

    make use of the ADM2 code.

  • Hi

    Is there a list of stuff which would have changed as far as a standard ADM2 is concerned?

  • At this moment we do not have a list of the most recent ADM2 changes. The

    Development group is currently working on improvements in several areas of

    ADM2. These changes include performance improvements for a distributed

    stateless environment as well as bug fixes. We will be creating a more

    specific list in the future documenting these changes. However, since the

    development process is still underway, the code is constantly changing at

    the moment.
