After almost a year with my head buried in the "Real World©", I'm finally able to get back into AxKit almost-full-time. Starting with AxKit::XSP::Session -- my first, unsuccessful, attempt at writing an XSP Taglib -- I banged it into shape, and renamed it AxKit::XSP::BasicSession (to get rid of the nasty namespace stomping-on-other-modules-feet problem). I'm really happy with it now; it has a bunch of really cool features, not the least of which is that it actually works now! I have one up on Microsoft at least.
Add to that some changes to AxKit::XSP::PerForm, and a new Parameter Taglib (still in limbo unfortunately), and I'm feeling pretty good.
I've written a quickie article on using ESQL in the real world, and have thrown it up on my site. Maybe it'll help some poor new quasi-newbie out there.
Anyway, back to my real job.
