building POCO on AIX with brain-dead compilers

Some brain-dead C++ compilation environments on AIX require that the use of preprocessor is confined to quite an old dialect, certainly not a C99 conformant one. Such systems are sadly still in use and relied on by commercial organisations. Sadly this means Poco will not build on them. This is becau...

Re: Many files are required to add unit tests to Poco

> I am all for unit testing but my approach is to have 3 files; the header, the associated implementation and one other file - the test harness. Poco seems to require several files and several classes. Although Peter's post makes it alot clearer what is needed to test a new class in poco IMO it is s...

Platinum integration premature?

It seems to me that integration with platinum may be too early. Looking at the sourceforge page no downloads are available, the list of supported OSs is left unspecified and the development status is beta.

Many files are required to add unit tests to Poco

I am all for unit testing but my approach is to have 3 files; the header, the associated implementation and one other file - the test harness. Poco seems to require several files and several classes. This seems a bit heavyweight to me and an impediment to adding further classes to Poco. Any thoughts...

HowTo on adding new foundation classes

Please add a HOWTO here for developers that wish to add new classes to Poco. I am in the process of adding ImmutableString and am struggling to understand how the test stuff is to be added.

Re: Forum web pages needlessly narrowed

> The POCO web pages have been narrowed so there is a large blue border on the left and right hand sides. When it comes to the forums this means there is a severe space restriction and stuff winds up in a very small font. Us middle-aged folk find this very hard to read. Can you please consider getti...

Re: CMake

> It would be nice if you could consider using Cmake as your cross-platform build system. By using CMake you can automate building and installing across all platforms. Even KDE is now using CMake. Another plus with CMake is that it knows about IDEs and will generate the required files for them. Chec...
