Hey Kids Rock On

James Robertson relays a presentation by Niall Ross...

The demo Niall is showing is pretty cool - using rewrite rules and a port of Store for Glorp to VW 3, he's replicating code from VW 3 into a Store repository, and then reconciling it in VW 7.x. Another cool thing - Niall and a few other people have extended the rewrite engine piece of the RB with menus, in order to make it easier to use.
Another reason why Smalltalk especially, and dynamic languages generally, win. Not likely in Java, eh? No wonder they want duck typing.
